A medium-late ripening selection from Europe, this black currant is a vigorous grower with colorful auburn leaves in the fall. Delicious larger berries suitable for fresh eating or processing. Has a slightly "fruitier" taste than the Ben series. Chernaya Lisavenko is a tasty and productive Russian black currant cultivar released by the Gardening Research Institute of Siberia in 1985. It was secured from the University of Minnesota in the late 1980s. Russians, Ukrainians, Polish and other eastern and northern Europeans love the berry for its authentic flavor. The plants are upright, vigorous, disease resistant and productive. The berries are suitable for all purposes - our propagator's favorite variety.

I’ve been growing and trialing figs in southwestern Wisconsin for 30 years. My focus was on container figs which will ripen in Wisconsin without a greenhouse, but now that I have an unheated hoophouse & I’ve been putting many varieties in the ground.
I am sacredgroveorganics on eBay and run a Facebook group called NORTHERN FIG GROWERS which has several thousand members. I also sell cuttings of currants, grapes, elderberries, willows, kiwis and scionwood of pears and mulberries.
