CURRANT - RED

Riebes rubrum or redcurrantBy Lukas Riebling GFDL, CC-BY-SA-3.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Ribes rubrum
Description

Slightly more sour than its relative the blackcurrant, and is cultivated mainly for jams and cooked dishes. Currants require a cold winter and can be grown in areas that may be too wet and shady for other fruit.

Planted in 2008 amongst the raspberry patch- no fruit yet

Got a few fruit in summer of 2009/2010- interesting taste- hopefully get enough next year to make some jelly

Stuck in the corner of the raspberry patch this doesn't provide enough fruit to make a batch of jelly more a novelty than anything.

Got it as a seedling from bunnings 3 years ago.  It is currently planted in my front garden bed which is west facing getting full sun.  It had fruit last year but this year none.  This is because I pruned it back hard this past winter to train it but thriving.  I put seasol a month ago.
