Whitecurrants are mutants or sports of Redcurrants so grow and treat the same. Usually grown as bushes they can also be grown taller as cordons or fan trained againest a fence or wall. Grow on a sort leg, planting at the same height as they were on the nursery. Grow in a sunny position in a fertile, well drained soil. Tolerant of partial shade, but fruits will ripen a little later and may not be as flavoursome as bushes growing in full sun.
We do not grow Whitecurrants ourselves but offer non organic plants.

Whitecurrants have thinner skin than Blackcurrants so pick the strings or strigs of berries from the plants intact so as not to spoil them. The berries have a number of uses - in cooking or as garnishes for desserts where their different taste can add to the overall taste. They freeze well either with strigs retained or removed. Being rather pippy Whitecurrants make better jellies than jams.
