A strong growing cultivar producing reliable crops of fruit hanging in long trusses in early July.Tolerant of most soil conditions, the redcurrant is easy to grow. Mulch well with organic matter after planting to prevent weeds and provide nutrition. Fruit is produced on the previous year’s growth and older shoots. Cut back the main branches by one-half after planting. Create a framework of 8-10 branches. Each winter after the third year shorten main shoots by one-half. Redcurrants contain high levels of vitamin C, fruit acids and fibre.
