Red Lake Currant

Clear

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.
