Pink Currant Gloire de Sablons 3L

‘Gloire de Sablon’ is an easy to grow variety that produces heavy crops of large, sweet and wonderfully fragrant pink currants from mid to late July. You’ll be hard pushed to find pink currants in shops, however if you grow your own they are ideal for decorating desserts, or making summer puddings, jams and jellies. The remarkable soft, translucent pink currants have a delightful fragrance and a juicy, sweet flavour. The plants are robust and hardy and very resistant to pests so the perfect option if you want a plant that requires little care.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
