With a vigorous, bushy habit Whitecurrant 'Versailles' produces reliable crops of delicious juicy fruits. Heavy yields of pale yellow currants are carried on long trusses that can be harvested from July onwards. These attractive Whitecurrants have a less acidic flavour than their Redcurrant relatives making them ideal for eating straight from the plant for a delicious fresh dessert. Supplied as bareroot. Height and spread: 150cm (59").
Keep whitecurrant plants well watered during dry periods, particularly as the fruits are developing. Netting the bushes will help to protect the currants from birds. Whitecurrants can be harvested from July.
Whitecurrants form fruit on 2 year old wood, so after planting the leading shoots need only be pruned by half to encourage branching. In subsequent years, reduce any new growth by half. Take care not to cut back into the previous year's wood unless removing the occasional weak or damaged stem to encourage healthy new shoots to develop.
