Description How to Grow Delivery Reviews
Currants are expensive in supermarkets, so why not invest in a couple of bushes, that will provide you with currants galore, year after year, which can be used in desserts and jams. Currant Duo has two varieties that have big berries and produce high yields. Currants tend to be tart, so why not get some raspberries and strawberry plants as well, so they can be enjoyed together. They freeze particularly well so there is no risk of an unmanageable glut of fruit!

  • Collection comprises:
  • Blackcurrant ‘Big Ben’ - Fruits are sweet enough to be eaten fresh or used in cakes, jams and crumbles.
  • Redcurrant ‘Rovada’ - Bears its generous crop in long strings making them particularly easy to harvest.
