The richest and sweetest flavored of all currants!
Includes three 'White Imperial' Currant bareroots.

The White Imperial is the best in quality of all currants. Introduced in 1895, the 'White Imperial' produces white flowers that turn into loose clusters of beautiful, white, translucent fruit with pink blush that varies in size from medium to large. Enjoy eating fresh from the bush or freezing for later use.


Is this for you?
Pollinator Friendly! 'White Imperial' produces an upright bush with showy white flowers that can be grown in a large container or whisky barrel, or used as a decorative hedge and is highly attractive to pollinators and birds.

An early to mid-season bearer. Ripening in mid-July the flavor is rich, almost sweet and the texture is juicy and tender, a choice dessert fruit. This variety is also high in vitamin C, and can be enjoyed eating fresh from the bush or freezing for later use. 'White Imperial' is a self-pollinating variety and you will get fruit with only one plant! 

Virtually maintenance free! Currants prefer full sun but will grow in partial shade. Currants have a moderate growth rate and need pruning annually to remove dead wood to rejuvenate new growth in early spring. Resistant to powdery mildew, it performs best in enriched, well-drained soil.
