A favorite fruit for Europeans, most Americans have not had the opportunity to taste these delicious berries. Attractive additions to yards and landscapes, these very hardy, upright growing shrubs are a striking sight in fruit, with large clusters of pink, red, white or black berries cascading down the heavily laden branches. Currants are rich in antioxidants and are much higher in Vitamin C than oranges. Red, White and Pink Currants are basically different forms of the same species. Currants are self-fertile and hardy to minus 40°F. or below.
Pink Currant is prized for its striking racemes of attractive and very colorful, translucent berries. These flavorful berries are very nutritious and make a sweet-tart snack or delicious and beautiful preserves. They ripen in late July and can become even sweeter and remain in good condition on the bush well into September.
