Got my red lake currant in the mail about three weeks ago and it has already started shooting out tons of leaves and looks very healthy.

I've ordered these from other companies in the past and had luck with them, usually getting them much MUCH cheaper. I was very excited about getting berries from those plants when the second and third years rolled around. On the second year, I got 2 currants off of one of the 6 plants. Then, we got a really hot and dry summer and a really cold winter and every plant died despite my watering and mulching. The other company would not replace the 3 that were less than a year old without paying shipping and the original bag and paperwork that came with the plant. Needless to say, I didn't get replacements! I was devastated! But, still determined, I tried from Gurneys this year. One of the plants died, but the one left looks very healthy and is already twice the size of the 2 year plants from the other companies. And, Gurneys is replacing the one that died at no cost, so in the end, I think it will actually be cheaper than the other place to get my row started!

I planted 2 of these in 2007. I made alot of jelly last year even after my 2 & 5yr old helped pick (mostly eat) them. The jelly is a hit with the neighbors and great as an ice cream topping for the kids. A few of my neighbors even asked where to get current bushes of their own. Thanks you so much Gurney's.

Great Producer

They looked like a couple of foot long sticks with roots on one end, with proper planting (root end down) and a little care they started to grow. Not much to see for the first three years or so, then before you know it branches four or five feet high, some strait up, some arching to the sides. Chains of tiny light green bloosems in the spring turn to chains of bright red pea sized berries in July, heavy enough to bend down the branches. Any already leaning to the sides will be arched over to the ground. They berries are tart, between rasberry and cranberry. Makes great jam. Next planting I would elevate (raised beds) to mulch around the bush and make it easier to mow around.

This was even better than I expected! I got 6 quarts of jam from the one plant that I harvested! The flavor is similar to that of a cherry, and they are the same size. I will always buy plants from gurneys from now on.
