New Zealand Blackcurrant Story
New Zealand is located about half way between the equator and the South Pole.
The South Island of New Zealand produces the highest quality blackcurrants in the world.
The climate in New Zealand ranges from temperate in the South to sub-tropical in the North.
The South Island especially, has optimal conditions for blackcurrant growing. The severe cold of winter and strong sunlight with high ultraviolet content enable the cultivation of blackcurrants which are nutritious, high in anthocyanin, delicious and full of flavour.
Major growing regions within the South Island are Nelson and the Canterbury Plains.
