My plant is growing well, this is year 2 and we have berries and the berries are very bitter and sour. I was told they would be sweet. If you have any suggestions let me know or the bush is coming out. I did not buy from this grower, looking for some help.Cindy
I'm amazed at how well these plants are doing. They are branching out like crazy with tons of fruit on last year's branches. I just picked a quart of fruit from my 4 plants - this is only the plants' second year - and there's another quart or two out there still. They make delicious jelly, and the berries are so unique looking. Nice that the berries "hide" under the leaves so our voracious birds can't find them easily.Lori
Purchased 3-4 years ago. Plant has gone gangbusters. Last Fall pruned severely sad it became huge and visitors could barely enter yard as it is situated at deck corner and extended into walkway. Once severely pruned thought no fruit 2020. Lol. It has become ginormous once again heavily laden w currants.nancy d
Picking and preserving my priority for today!!!
I've never had such a pitiful plant. This is my third year having the plant and it's still only 6" tall!!! As soon as I received it, it got a rust and completely defoliated. The next year it started out looking good, then in the summer looked like it was about to die and never regrew any leaves. This year I see some new leaves at the base. Again, it's only 6" tall and most of it looks dead. I'm a professional landscape designer with tons of knowledge on growing plants. Nearly everything I grow thrives but not this. It's in a good growing spot and Ive done things to try and help out along, but I believe I got a bad plant. It's pitiful and Ive wasted enough time with it. Money wasted and time spent trying to grow this fruit. Description days you can get fruit in one year and Ive wasted 3 in just trying to get it to grow at all.Katrina Kelly
