Chilean Currant     £7.00

Ribes gayanum                Sold out

The Chilean Currant is a useful addition to our stock, as it will take over an awkward corner with spreading suckers though rarely getting more than 1m high. Bushy and evergreen with emerald, velvety bright leaves and tiny scented yellow flowers in early summer, though only really hardy in the southern half of the country, it is not fussy about soil and although it will thrive in sun or shade, will fruit better with more sun.

Produced in July-August, the currants are rather small and a bit hairy but have a good flavour, and can be used like any other currant.
