Black Currant plants were banned in New York State in the early 1900’s but the ban was lifted in 2003. The plan can host a disease called white pine blister rust which can be transferred to pine trees. With the ban lifted, we located cuttings and established a couple of rows at Glorie Farms. By 2007 we harvested our first crop and fermented it into Black Currant Wine. This product has exceptional, unmistakable flavor. Use it drizzled over vanilla ice cream, cheesecake or a green salad. Better yet, have a glass after dinner. Pouring the 2010 vintage now!
