Rovada Redcurrant Bushes

Rovada redcurrants are simply the best redcurrant variety available today, an almost perfect redcurrant bush with an RHS Award of Garden Merit.  The berries are carried in long strings to make picking easy, yields are enormous (up to 10kgs per bush) and the redcurrants themselves are outstandingly tasty. Unmistakably redcurrant. Rovada redcurrant bushes crop late, from mid July and well into August.
If you can only have one redcurrant plant, pick this one! If you have space for a few, you can start your harvest season earlier by including Junifer
Browse our variety of currant bushes or see our full range of soft fruit bushes.

All redcurrants like a bit of room to breathe. Rovada should be grown at 140cms spacing in the row and with 150cms between the rows.

You can grow Rovada as a redcurrant cordon. These are well worth thinking about as cordon redcurrants need far less space than bushes; you can plant them just 75cms (18") apart. When grown against a wall, cordon redcurrants are also much easier to protect against birds. Although they do not crop as heavily as a full sized bush, cordon redcurrants can still be extremely productive relative to the space they occupy. (Our Rovada redcurrant cordons are 2 year old plants, single stemmed and ready to crop)

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, 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.
