Red Currant
Honey Bee Haskap (Honeyberry)

Red Currant is a deciduous shrub native to western Europe. It features five-lobed, maple-like leaves, and bright red berries that can be used in jams, sauces, and fresh eating.

Although this shrub is self-fertile, it will be more productive if another pollinator is present. For year over year high yields, ensure you fertilize (bone meal), prune, and mulch your Red Currant shrub.

Honey Bee Haskap is a hardy deciduous shrub. Honey Bee Haskap produces tarter fruit than the Borealis and Tundra varieties, and it holds its fruit longer. This Haskap's leaves are sunburn and powdery mildew resistant. Honey Bee Haskap makes a great pollinator for Borealis, Tundra or the Indigo varieties.
