About White Cherry Currant Plants

Some of the sweetest currants! The White Cherry currant plant is a small shrub native to Europe and Asia that produces clusters of sweet berries in early summer. It is a member of the Ribes genus and is closely related to other currant species, such as the black currant and red currant. White Cherry currant is known for its small, white flowers that bloom in the spring and early summer. These flowers are followed by plump, blushed berries that ripen in the summer and fall.

The edible berries have a sweet, tart flavor, significantly sweeter than red and black currants. The fruit is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. The traditionally tart berries are used to make cordial, jelly, jams, added to baked goods, and summer puddings.

In addition to its tasty berries, the white cherry currant plant is also valued for its attractive flowers and leaves. The leaves are dark green and glossy, and they provide a nice contrast to the white flowers. The shrub also has a compact, rounded shape that makes it an excellent choice for hedges, borders, and foundation plantings. It is also a popular choice for wildlife gardens, as the berries are a favorite food of birds and other wildlife.

How to Grow White Cherry Currants

The White Cherry currant plant is a hardy and easy-to-grow shrub that thrives in a variety of soil types and climates. These hardy plants are even deer-resistant! This currant plant prefers full sun to partial shade and can tolerate cold temperatures. However, it is not drought-tolerant and should be watered regularly during dry spells. When grown in the right conditions, White Cherry currant plants can reach a height of up to 5 feet and a spread of up to 4 feet. It is a self-pollinating plant.

Overall, the White Cherry Currant plant is a versatile and easy-to-grow shrub that is well-suited to a wide range of gardens and landscapes. Its tasty berries, attractive flowers, and compact size make it an excellent choice for any gardener looking to add a touch of color and interest to their yard.
