  • Whitecurrant 'Blanka'

Product Description

Blanka is the connoisseurs currant. Better tasting and heavier cropping than a Versailles whitecurrant, Blanka can produce over 4kgs of fruit per bush. That is enough for eight 0.5 litre jars of whitecurrant jelly which is the ultimate accompaniment to roast lamb or pork - or just by itself on a spoon!.

Whitecurrants behave exactly like redcurrants and like a bit of space. Blanka should be spaced 140cms apart in the row with 150cms between rows.

Care instructions Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Grow currants in well-drained soil, which has been enriched by adding plenty of well-rotted manure. Choose a slightly sheltered spot, and although plants prefer full sun, they will tolerate dappled shade.
