ABSTRACT
In this study, the mechanical properties of blackcurrant shoots are expressed by means of shoot rigidity and elasticity coefficients determined in a bending test. The experiment was performed on one-, twoand three-year old shoots of the Titania and Ojebyn varieties. It was found that the determination of the mechanical properties of one-, twoand three-year old shoots contributed to the knowledge of the strength characteristics of shoots of blackcurrant shrubs. The studies also showed the differentiation between the varieties.
