Ribes rubrum ‘Red Lake’
A red currant cultivar which is grown primarily for fruit production. It is a compact, mounding, deciduous shrub grown for its tasty red berries.
Clusters of greenish-yellow flowers bloom in spring, and are noticeable but not particularly ornamental. Medium green leaves are 3-5 lobed, and are aromatic when crushed. Flowers give way to long, pendant clusters of bright red currants which ripen in July. The berries have a tart taste and juicy texture. Good for preserves and wine making.
