    I love black currants. Noone in the states appreciates them. Nice video.

    I just ordered a ridiculous amount of various fruiting shrubs. Hopefully most of not all of them bear fruit. Still dealing with maggot type bugs in my cherries and plums.

    Do you have problems with gooseberry sawfly? Mine get really badly affected and unfortunately, the birds don’t seem to be interested in eating them. I try to squish them by hand but I’m not 100% successful and have been thinking about buying nematodes next year.

    Extraordinary big currant harvest this year, red, white and pink currants, gooseberries and after years a few jostaberries. Any tips on pruning those? Honeyberries have finally grown to a decent size and are cropping. Japanese wine berries are having a good year too

    How do you tell when your gooseberries are ready to pick? We put in a pink variety last year and its fruiting quite well. We have red and black currants, wild black raspberries and we put in red raspberries last year.

    good to see your forest garden again. love knowing the diff. varieties even though we can’t grow them here in Texas.

    Love all of your videos…I’ve got a question for you. My red currents are large and sour but a lovely bright red. They really aren’t nice. What could be making them so sour? I don’t know what the variety is xxx

    I’m growing black berries,red raspberries and blueberries trying to find the gold raspberry canes.

    I live in the USA, in Wisconsin…so our native soil is sandy prairie soil and our climate is very cold winters and hot summers.

    I have red and black currants, gooseberries, blueberries, ligonberries, strawberries (June and alpine), red and yellow raspberries. We have black raspberries growing like weeds just about everywhere. I keep a large patch on the north side of my garage and just mow along the edge to keep them in control.

    Over the next few years I want to add more blueberries, currants, and ligonberries, some white or pink currants, blackberries, purple raspberries, mulberries, goji berry, cranberries, aronia, and elderberries (I forage for elderberries right now and I’d like to have some in my garden too)

    You must get pink Champagne variety of current so far it’s been my favorite Berry very delicious on a compact plant that produces well. Black velvet is the sweetest Gooseberry as well.

    I like freezing currants to put on muesli or porridge but also to add to smoothies. However, a couple of weeks ago I met a friend at lunchtime and I ordered a blackcurrant and hibiscus tea thinking it would be in a sachet. Wrong…it was loose tea served in a glass teapot and the rehydrated blackcurrants were so pretty bobbing about in this pink infusion! So i think this year I will try drying some.

    So many options to choose from. Thanks for sharing.

    There are awesome varieties of Ribes aureum, good taste, grows well, unusual colours of fruit – can be orange and yellow

    Good morning, Vera. I make jam from my currents with very strong east frisian tea:

    I agree with John Doe, the Champagne variety is really good. Jostaberries I’m not so much a fan of, they don’t seem to taste much of anything, but maybe that’s just ours.

    Jostaberry plants propagate very easily. Last fall I took around 10 cuttings, stuck them in my soil and got 7 new plants this spring. Mine are not very flavorful though.

    I wood love to add some currents and gooseberry into my garden

    I’m in Louisiana, near the gulf coast. I grow blackberries, strawberries, and southern blueberries. I have tropical berry trees in pots such as barbados cherry, grumichama, and a Jamaican strawberry tree. I have to protect from freeze spells.

    Enjoyed your video very much. I also have black, red, and white currants, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and boysenberries. Most were only planted last summer. Going to try my hand with thimbleberries and jostaberries soon. Keep up the good work!
