Product Information

Redcurrants that have been allowed to ripen in the sun taste sensational and far superior to anything you can buy in supermarkets - perfect for eating fresh, adding to your favourite desserts or freezing for use at later date.

'Jonkheer van Tets' is a culinary variety of redcurrant, producing heavy crops of large berries on long strigs in early season. The jewel-like, flavoursome fruits of this redcurrant are loved by leading chefs and are perfect for adding to pork dishes, tarts, summer puddings, cheesecakes or turning into long-lasting jellies.

Packed full of vitamins, the berries sparkle like jewels in the sun and drip from plants in long 'strigs', this tasty superfruit is perfect for adding an ornamental touch to beds or patios when grown in containers.

Happy in sun, a slightly shaded spot or even planted next to a tricky north facing wall, this great variety is robust and reliable, requiring only the minimum of care.

Supplied as and established plant in a 2L pot and growing up to 1.5m (5ft), (although it can easily be kept shorter by pruning), 'Jonkheer van Tets' will reward you with crops that get larger and larger each year.

Top Tips

  • If you're short on space, currants can be grown in a large pot - so anyone can have a go at growing them.
  • Harvest whole trusses and use immediately, or store in the fridge for a few days. Alternatively, place in freezer bags and freeze whole for later use.

 

Care Information

Planting Advice for Redcurrant 'Jonkheer van Tets':

  • Easy-to-grow soft fruits that cope with a wide range of soil conditions, they're best grown in well-drained, fertile soil with a neutral to acid pH.
  • Full sun is preferred, but partial shade is tolerated, and plants can be even trained against a north wall.
  • Keep the area around the bushes free of other plants - a mulch of well-rotted compost, manure or bark will help supress weeds and retain moisture.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Aftercare Advice for Jonkheer van Tets Redcurrant:

  • Currants prefer moist, well-drained soil in full sun, or light shade.
  • Keep well-watered.
  • In late winter, feed with a balanced fertiliser, following the instructions.
  • Weed and mulch around the plant in late winter to suppress weeds. Avoid hoeing near the base of the bush where new shoots are developing.
  • If growing in a pot, choose one that is around 45-50cm (18-20in) in diameter and use a good-quality compost (John Innes No 3 is ideal).
  • Repot every 2-3 years into the same pot or slightly larger. Trim back some of the roots and tease away the old soil replacing it with fresh JI No 3 compost.

Pruning Advice for your Redcurrant:

  • Redcurrants bear their fruit on old wood. Prune bushes by removing diseased or very old branches in winter, then prune new growth back to two buds in early summer to keep plants compact.
  • Leaders should be pruned to outward facing buds unless the branches are bending, in which case they then should be cut to upward facing buds.
