Red Currant
Aurora 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.

Aurora Haskap produces great tasting berries. Their taste is a cross between raspberry and blueberry. The berries can be used for eating fresh, baking, jams and jellies, freezing. The haskap berries are high in vitamins, fibre, and anti-oxidants.

Aurora is a pollinator variety that causes other varieties to have a higher yield when planted together. Borealis and Aurora have similar taste but differ in the size and shape of the fruit. Aurora is a great companion variety for the Borealis.
