Blanka Whitecurrant Bushes

Blanka is the connoisseur's currant. Better tasting and heavier cropping than a Versailles whitecurrant, Blanka can produce over 4kgs of fruit per bush. That is enough for eight 0.5 litre jars of whitecurrant jelly, which is the ultimate accompaniment to roast lamb or pork. 
Browse our variety of currant bushes or see our full range of soft fruit bushes.

Whitecurrants behave exactly like redcurrants and like a bit of space. Blanka should be spaced 140cms apart in the row with 150cms between rows.

They tolerate a bit of shade and poor soil, as long as you improve it with compost first and use a mulch (not touching the stems) to maintain moisture.
Best results will be in full sun & rich, well drained but moist soil. 

How to prune mature Whitecurrants:

Two and three year old wood is the most productive. Prune out entire stems down to their base after their third year, in winter. 
Prune the side shoots on two year old stems down to just above two buds up from the stem, in winter. This prepares them for the best crop in their third and final year. 
Don't prune new stems, unless it is sagging low towards the ground, or if it is weak or damaged.
