Blackcurrants are one of the world’s most commercially grown crops and have been picked in the wild since medieval times when they were also used as a medicinal herb.

It wasn’t until the 19th and 20th centuries that research uncovered just how vitamin packed blackcurrants are!

Weight for weight, blackcurrants have 4 times as much vitamin C as oranges and were one of the most grown fruits during the early part of the 20th century, especially during war years when vitamin C wasn’t easy to find elsewhere.
Blackcurrants are also a good source of calcium and iron and are rich in antioxidants.

This step by step growing guide will help you get the most out of your home-grown blackcurrants.
