Plant details

Previously known as 'White Versailles'. Whitecurrants are a colour form of redcurrant, with a quality all of their own, and rarely seen unless grown in the garden. Crops are very heavy and usually untouched by birds despite their delicious flavour. Like redcurrants, plants develop a permanent system of fruiting sideshoots, and may be trained as fans, espaliers, cordons and standards, as well as bushes. Grow all kinds on a single, clear stem, known as a leg, for easy maintenance. 'Versailles Blanche' is widely considered to be the best variety, with long strings of large currants and an outstanding flavour.
