Ribes rubrum 'Jonkheer van Tets'

Plant details

The redcurrant, Ribes rubrum, is closely related to the blackcurrant, but unlike many varieties of soft fruit, redcurrants grow well in northern areas and can tolerate a bit of shade. However, the more sun the plants get, the sweeter the berries. The fruit is perfect for using in summer puddings, pies and jelly, and even wine-making.

Ribes rubrum 'Jonkheer van Tets' is a modern Dutch redcurrant. It's one of the earliest varieties to ripen, bearing heavy crops of sweet-tasting fruit from early July.

Grow Ribes rubrum 'Jonkheer van Tets' in well-drained, fertile soil in a sheltered, sunny or partially shaded spot. Prune every winter.
