'Norby' – en ny svarta vinbärssort

Iwarsson, Mattias


This article describes a new variety of Black Currant called Ribes nigrum ‘Norby’. It was found 30 years ago in the quarter of Uppsala called Norby. It was found on a waste place in the Town forest (Stadsskogen) and is probably an old variety more than 60 years old or a new variety raised from seeds. The new variety is called ‘Norby’ from the original locality. It is an upright growing shrub, which is resistant to gall mites and it is also well resistant to mildew. A herbarium specimen, Iwarsson 2011, of the new variety will be deposited in (UPS), Museum of Evolution, Botany at Uppsala University
