Red Currants (Ribes rubrum, petraeum and sativum crosses)
Very easy to grow and highly disease resistant, these bushes are super productive of pleasant sweet-tart fruits that make classic jellies, juices, wine and other cooked desserts. The red fruits hang on the bush for a long time for long season fresh eating and high ornamental value. We like to add them to our cranberry sauce(along with some finely chopped quince). High in vitamin C and other healthy compounds. They grow about 5 feet tall and wide and are self fertile. Hardy zones 4-8.
