Very impressed with the cherry trees recieved in perfect condition.planted as per instructions.I would like advice, as now I have got them I am told I will never have cherries as the birds always get there first.As the trees max height is 8ft is there some way I can protect them and when is it the beast time to offer this protection. I would be grateful for your advice. Webmasters Reply: Here on the nursery we have found hanging old cd's in the tree the most effective method of control; these must be in place from approximately mid March until after the fruit has been harvested.

This new variety really sets the standard for blackcurrants, and makes it the first real dessert variety (ie can be eaten raw without needing sugar).

Usually ripening in the first couple of weeks of July (so it's early too), the fruits are large and firm and have a delicate flavour. But what really stands this variety apart is its sweetness (with a Brix value of up to 15%); you genuinely do not need sugar if eating these raw.

The plant itself has a reasonably vigorous habit and, without training, will produce an open slightly spreading bush; it is also perfect for growing on wires or as a cordon.

With the added benefit of its excellent resistance to powdery mildew we really cannot recommend this variety enough.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Harvest from early July.
  • Self fertile.
  • In bush form 'Ebony' is best planted 5 x 5 feet (1.5 x 1.5 metres) apart and kept at around 4 - 5 feet (1.2 - 1.5 metres) tall.
  • Mildew Resistant.
