Product information "Cassissima® Neva®"

Cassissima® Neva is the most beautiful, new blackcurrant variety in our N series that includes the varieties Neva, Nimue and Noiroma. Beautiful? Can this be a criterion for a blackcurrant? Yes! Casissima® Neva has the most upright habit, the darkest green leaves and the finest strings when compared to the other varieties. And it also has the healthiest growth; it is tolerant to mildew and it is not susceptible to blight and leaf spot. The flavour also brings progress compared to conventional standard varieties: it has an accented cassis flavour but is much milder and sweeter than most commercial varieties that were originally bred for the industry, for the processing of juice and the extraction of concentrate.
In addition to the normal and most common training as a bush, Cassissima® Neva is therefore particularly suitable for training as a hedge, in which the 3-4 main branches are tied to a trellis. Thanks to its vigour and health, Cassissima® Neva is suitable for any location and also brings in good yields when planted in partial shade. It can grow slightly more than 150 cm high.
Maturity: Shortly after Cassissima® Noiroma and Cassissima® Nimue, in early July, medium early
Fruits: Very large berries on long strings; very good to pick
Flavour: Mild, with typical cassis flavour
Growth/health: Strong, upright habit; for hedges; mildew resistant, tolerant to leaf spot
Width: 100-150 cm
Height: 130-170 cm

Plant currants high for training as hedges When planning to train a currant to become a hedge, by tying 3-5 shoots on a trellis, you should plant the young plant as high as possible. What does “high” mean? This is when the upper edge of the root ball is only slightly covered with topsoil. As a result, fewer new basal shoots will grow. While these are desirable and necessary for bushes, for hedge training you want to work with the main branches for a longer time and too many shoots at the base are therefore undesirable. Nevertheless, the main branches must be renewed every 4-6 years; select the strongest shoot at the base and cut the oldest branches down to ground level.
