Redcurrants and white currants

UK Garden Centre - Information about Redcurrants and White currants

42

Redcurrants and white currants are two varieties of the same fruit and require completely different conditions to blackcurrants, more nearly resembling the gooseberry in their culture and habit. They do not crop so heavily as other soft fruits, and birds will take the red berries if not covered. Bu they make a delicious conserve to have with meats and make a pleasant sweet if allowed to grow large, being at their best served with a sprinkling of red wine.
These currants grow on a leg or as cordons and take up little space. They are not troubled by frost but are not happy in a cold windy garden. They also require a light soil but as they are shy in forming new wood, they need as much nitrogenous humus as possible. This helps to conserve soil moisture so that the fruits grow large and to produce new growth each year.
Plant between November and March when the soil is suitable, removing any growths from the ‘leg’ before doing so. Plant 90-120cm (3-4ft) apart, 120cm (4ft) for the vigorous Laxton’s No. 1. in March, cut back the shoots to 7cm (3in) of their base, which will be above the ‘leg’, to form a nicely shaped head.
The fruits begin to colour mid-July, when they should be covered with muslin against birds. Remove the fruits at exactly the right moment, when fully ripe. If left on the plants too long they will become soft.
