Details

This popular early variety is the first whitecurrant to crop in the season. A heavy cropping variety producing masses of large, shiny, soft pale yellow/white berries in long heavy trusses during mid-late summer. The fruit is deliciously sweet, not as acidic as redcurrant, so is great for eating fresh or using in a wide range of culinary purposes. White Versailles has a vigorous, upright bushy growth habit with attractive arching canes and serrated three lobed pale green leaves. A very reliable cropper year after year. Eventual height and spread: 1.5m (5ft). Self fertile.

 

Aspect & Exposure

Plant in a sheltered spot in a well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or light shade.

 

Planting
Soak the root-ball before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established.

 

After Care
Fruit is produced on previous year's canes. First year cut down old canes when new shoots appear. Cut older canes back to ground level after fruiting, tie in newly produced canes and remove tips.
