Currants of all colours (black, red, and white) are hardy, tough, and tolerant of most conditions. And, although blackcurrants prefer a more fertile soil and higher sunshine levels than white or red currants - that does mean that the whites can be grown in semi-shade, yet still ripen quite successfully!

A delightful addition to any currant patch - pink currants have the delicate flavour and sweetness of a whitecurrant, all wrapped up in a translucent pale pink parcel. Never seen in the shops, these make a wonderful decoration to summer puddings, but also make a superb cordial.
