The assessment of cultivars was carried out from 1992-96 at the Cracow Agricultural University. The experiment covered six blackcurrant, two redcurrant and one whitecurrant cultivars. The highest yields of blackcurrant were obtained from the cultivars Titania, Triton, and Ben Lomond, while the higher yielding cultivar of redcurrants was Rosetta. The lowest yielding cultivar was Biała of Jüterbog. In the group significantly resistant to diseases were the cultivars Fertödi, Ben Lomond, and Titania. The region of southern Poland offers favourable conditions for the commercial growing of currants.
