Currant Red Lake






Red Lake is the finest red currant with large, deep red berries. It is very strong and productive, often bearing full-bodied fruit the first year after planting. It is a compact, mounding, shrub which grows 3-5' tall and can form a decorative hedge even when not in fruit. After Red Lake currant planting, prune it back, leaving only 1 or 2 buds above the ground on each existing stem. A well maintained planting can produce bountiful harvests for many years. Red Lake is the cold hardiest and most widely grown currant. Fruits on two year old wood. Self-pollinating. Hardiness zones 3-7.
