Jonkheer Van Tet Redcurrant Bushes

One of the earliest redcurrants, and easily the best in that category, with excellent quality fruit and yield, and long pretty strings of flower. RHS Award of Garden Merit holder and recommended as a top nectar producer for pollinating insects.
Browse our variety of currant bushes or see our full range of soft fruit bushes.

Space at 1.5 metres between plants along a row, and also between rows.

Please note that (unless sold as a cordon) all our currant bushes have at least 2 stems when lifted. Jonkheer Van Tet does very well as a cordon.

Redcurrants tolerate some shade well, where they tend to ripen later, and be a bit less sweet, which is fine if you plan to make jelly with them. They perform well on any well drained soil; if it is both poor and dry, improve it with compost before planting and use mulch around it; keep the mulch off the stems.

How to prune mature Redcurrants:

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, this prepares them for the best crop in their third and final year. 
Don't prune new stems, unless sagging low towards the ground, weak or damaged.
