Red Currant
Indigo Gem Haskap

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.

Indigo Gem has fruit similar in size and firmness to the Tundra variety, making it suitable for commercial production or your home garden.

Indigo Gem is an early pollinating variety. Pair with other early pollinators to have a higher yield.
Berry Blue or Aurora are great companion varieties.
