Currants are a small woody shrub, hardy to zone 3. They are not fussy, will grow in part shade and even tolerate less than perfect soil conditions. These bushes bloom in late spring, and fruit is harvested in mid summer. Each bush can produce many lbs of nutritious berries.

Red, white(pictured with lavender) and pink currants can be enjoyed raw, in smoothies, cooked or dried. Black currants are best enjoyed cooked as their flavour improves. Black currants make excellent wine!
