Thanks for the info I'll have to look into Titania then. Haven't seen
them around locally. Maybe I'll care out a proper black currant patch,
IF I can find some space! I'm already full to the brim practically with
all my other fruit varieties!
PS - Is your brother into fruit growing too? If he would ever be
interested in a swap I am just down the road!
