Currants are a hardy, easy-to-grow berry that grows on small shrubs. These berries are native to North America and go well in pies, jams or pastries.

Before Planting: To prepare a site for planting, add a layer of compost and dig it into the soil.

Planting: Currants should be planted in the early spring. Space plants 4 to 5 feet apart in rows set 6 feet apart.

Watering: Water the newly planted currants with a slow trickle for 60 to 90 minutes.

Fertilizer: Feed currants once a year, usually in the spring. Use a potassium-rich fertilizer.

Days to Maturity: Currants typically aren’t ready to harvest for a year after planting, but 2-year old plants should produce flowers and berries. (See each variety for days to maturity)

Harvesting: Currants have various colors, so pick them two to three weeks after they have turned the color they are supposed to be, which could be white, black or red.

Tips: Currants should be pruned in the early spring following the first year.
