About Our Currants and Gooseberries

Currant Information

The currants are available bareroot. These self-pollinators do the best in full sun but can tolerate a little shade. These plants prefer a little acidity. Soil can easily be amended. These are fairly deer-resistant plants and are a low-maintenance, easy to grow plant. Note that Jostaberries (cross between gooseberry and black currant) are on the “Other Fruits” page.

In store shopping and pre-order pickup is April 26th - May 19th.
