Currants, whether they're white, pink, red or black, are extremely versatile and can be used in jams, jellies, summer puddings, pies or for decorating cakes. They freeze well, which means you can make the most of your bumper crops of these juicy fruits. You'll receive healthy bareroot plants that will quickly establish in your garden and give you a great harvest for many years to come.
