Description:

'Titania' is a large, firm, and more mildly flavored currant, with its black berries usually all ripening simultaneously. They like well drained soil with higher organic content and will do well in sun to part shade, but are less specific to soil type than other currant varieties. They are very hardy, but choosing a place with less exposure to harsh winters will be beneficial. It is a good all-around cultivar.

All plants in the Ribes genus are alternate hosts for white pine blister rust, but 'Titania' is more resistant to WPBR than other Ribes species and varieties.
