Black and Red Currants are a great edible addition to any home landscape. The plants grow 4 to 6 feet tall and are commonly planted 4 to 5 feet apart. They are one of the few berry plants that can tolerate, and even thrive, in partial shade. These plants come in 1 gallon pots and are ready to plant.
These plants will be available starting Friday, May 12th at the farm.
This year we are offering the following varieties:
Consort Black Currant: Ripens in mid July. Black currants have a strong and unique flavor and are often used in jams, jellies, juice, and sauces. Fruit is high in vitamin C. Can be grown as a fruiting hedge if planted three feet apart.
Jonkheer Van Tets Red Currant: Berries ripen in early July. Has a sweet flavor and is great for fresh eating right off the bush.
