The humble Red Currant Berry really has proven to be an enduringly popular choice amongst British fruit gardeners, and it isn't difficult to see why. Celebrated for their high vitamin C content, currant berries make an excellent addition to a healthy diet, and growing your own couldn't be easier! Whether you have a spacious fruit garden or just some space on the patio for a potted plant, Currant Red Lake is simple to grow and maintain and produces heavy crops of red berries on trailing trusses year after year. Why not add to a red currant jelly or fruit salad for a summer vitamin boost? What's more, this superb specimen is also self-fertile meaning that it can produce fruits all by itself, making it the ideal choice for experienced and amateur gardeners alike. To ensure optimum yield and quality of red currant berries, we recommend planting this well-loved variety in a sunny, preferably south-facing position. Plant between late autumn and early spring and harvest during April and May for maximum sweetness of taste.
