Currant, Red
Currant, Red

  • Price: $15.00

Grow currants in well-drained soil, which has been enriched by adding plenty of well-rotted manure. Choose a slightly sheltered spot out of strong winds, and although plants prefer full sun, they will tolerate dappled shade. Avoid frost pockets. Water newly planted bushes well in dry weather, but long-established plants seldom need watering.

Comments Warnings :  Red currants are unique in flavour usually known for making red currant jam. They are very versatile being appropriate for a contrast with sweet foods and in savoury dishes as an addition to gravies and other deserts requiring a tart flavour. With maturity, the tart flavour of redcurrant fruit is slightly greater than its blackcurrant relative, but with the same approximate sweetness. They contain many vitamins and minerals including Vitamin A, C, E, K, B12, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus.
