    An early cropping whitecurrant, which produces long, heavy trusses of pale yellow fruits. These appear early in the season, so are ready to pick in early July and have a pleasantly sweet flavour. It is a very reliable cropper, and will provide a good yield year after year. Because of its many good features, 'Versailles Blanche' has become one of the most popular varieties available, for eating fresh or making into delicious jams, jellies, and puddings.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure in to the area. Once planted, apply a mulch of well-rotted manure every spring, as well as a nitrogen and potassium fertiliser. Make sure the plant is watered in dry weather and net the bushes to protect the currants from birds. In the first year, prune back to one bud above soil level in winter. After that prune out weak branches only.
