Red Lake Currant Plant

Jelly Makers Love It

  • Very cold hardy
  • Bears up to 3-4 qts. at maturity
  • Compact, deciduous shrub
The cold hardiest of quality, plum-red currants, Red Lake Currant often bears full-flavored fruit the first year after planting, on two-year-old wood. The compact, deciduous bushes grow 4-6 ft. tall and reliably produce large yields of up to 3-4 quarts when mature. The 8-10 inch long clusters of dark red berries are easy to pick. While the tart fruits can be eaten fresh, they're favorites for making into jellies, jams and desserts. Fruits ripen in July. Self pollinating. Zones 3-7.
