The shrubs have a strong vigour, an upright growth habit and medium thick leaders. The simple lobed leaves are medium-large, thick and dark green, the middle lobe is pointy, and usually two other matured side-lobes as well. The internodes are medium-long and are not twisted. Mid-late blooming.

Late ripening, ripens 1-3 days before ‘Titania’. Self-compatible, good productivity, even when sole planted, however when planted together with pollinating cultivars, the fruits set is better and the berry size is larger. The strigs are long (the average is 62 mm), the basically identical sized berries (the average is: 0.92 g) are arranged loosely on it. The berries are regular round shaped (average diameter: 10.9 mm), shiny black, firm, they cohere when not fully ripened.

High productivity cultivar, three year’s average yield is 2.83 kg/shrub. A ribiszke drepanopezizás levélfoltosságára érzékeny. Because the shrub has an appropriate size and shape, and the berries are easy-to pick, this cultivar is apt for mechanical harvesting.

The fruit is good for fresh consumption, freezing and canning. Good for both house gardening and for industrial cultivation.

National Food Chain Safety Office (NFCSO) classification: permitted to for breeding during a specified time period.

Good for canning. It has a lower market value than Jonkheer van Tets, due to the smaller berries.

‘Jonkheer van Tets’ bare-root type cultivar

‘Jonkheer van Tets’

The bush has strong vigour, an upright growth habit and the main branches are arranged moderately dense that grow many basal shoots. The canes bare spurs evenly.

The large, medium red, round berries are arranged loosely on the cluster. The seeds are tiny. Due to its long strigs, it can be picked by hand easily. The berry is a good desert fruit with a pleasant flavour.

Late ripening. The berries are shiny and black. The average number of berries per cluster is 8.2.

‘Rikő’ bare-root type cultivar

‘Rikő’

Robust, vigorous, sturdy and upright growing cultivar. The internodes of the twigs are shorter than that of the parent blackurrant’s, thus the fruit bearing buds per twig unit is higher. The shape of leaves are an intermedier beetwen the parents, their size is closer to the gooseberry. Not as fragrant as the blackberry. The flowers are bigger than either of the parent’s.

Ripens in earls July. The brownish black, later dark blue coloured fruits are shiny. There are 2-5 berries on one cluster.

Moderately susceptible to powdery mildew, very susceptible to white pine blister rust.

The produced yields are higher than both parent’s. The 4-year average yield per shrub was 3.4 kg.

Altoguh the food-processing industry is not very familiar with it yet, it has become a desired fruit in house gardens.
