  • Other features: large well-flavoured berries (early-July)

    This redcurrant is one of the first to ripen in early July so is a great choice if you want to kick off the picking season a little sooner than normal. The fruits have an excellent flavour and are bright and juicy so are rated very highly by enthusiasts and growers alike. The large bushes will usually produce a heavy crop of fruits each year.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure into the area. Once planted apply a mulch of well-rotted manure every spring as well as a nitrogen and potassium fertiliser. Make sure the plant is watered in dry weather and net the bushes to protect the fruit from birds. In the first year prune back to one bud above soil level in winter. After that only prune out weak branches.
