The Northumberland Berryworks is an experimental planting of gooseberries and currants to acertain the characteristics of cultivars and to evaluate the suitability of growing them in the Central Pennsylvania locale. At present there are approximately 80 cultivars of gooseberries and 40 cultivars of currants in the planting. Various cultural practices and modalities are evaluated. This project has been going on for the past ten years and some data is available for cultivars that have been evaluated for several years.
Polish Blackcurrant Growers Website
What is that site about ?
I created this site because after many long searches on the internet, I found only a few sites on this subject. I want to share my experiences and observations from growing and harvesting currants. I would like to describe here problems I faced while cultivating currants, types of machines and tools used by me, and how do I protect currants from pests and diseases. I would like to ask you for sending me email with your suggestions. If interest about this site will be high, perhaps I attempt to create something bigger ( maybe sort of information service about currants.
All you need to know about the health benefits of blackcurrants, products available and contacts for purchasing. Great site
