* Black Champion
-- Very productive, large bunch and berry; excellent quality, strong grower. The leading, well-tested black sort. Grown largely by some fruit growers for market, where it brings good prices.
* Black Victoria
-- A strong, vigorous grower, making a neat bush of unfailing productiveness; fruit of fine flavor and enormous size, the largest black in cultivation.
* Lee's Prolific
-- The best European Black Currant yet introduced, and one that makes a great advance in the fruit of its class. It is earlier than Black Naple, and of superior quality; larger, longer clusters, and even more productive than that prolific kind. Extensively cultivated for commercial purposes.
