Soft Fruit Red and White Currants
Buy Redcurrants From Spring Reach Nursery
Redcurrants and their less common cousin the whitecurrant are both very easy to grow as they thrive on most soil types and prefer partial sun. They bear fruit readily as they are self fertile and will crop from the second year onwards. Established red and whitecurrant bushes will crop between 1 and 2 kilo’s of fruit each year in early July. The fruit of the red and whitecurrant is high in vitaman C and is great for using in summer fruit pies as well as jam making as they contain natural pectin’s which help to set jams and jellies.
