It produces large shiny bright red currants which are ready for harvesting from early july. The currants are highly flavoured and are sweeter than most redcurrants. The JVT currants go very well with fatty meats such as duck or lamb and make great jellies. Redcurrants are high in Vitamin C and B1 and are said to have stomach calming qualities.
