Ask a Question
  • How many chill hours does the Jonkheer Van Tets red current variety need to produce fruit? Thank you!

    800+ chilling hours

  • Are those NON GMO?

    These are non-GMO.

  • I know a lot of people train this variety as a cordon because of its unruly bushy habit, but can you also train it as a standard? Would there be any issue with that? Thank you for your help!

    There is no problem growing it in a standard form. Commerical growing techniques are all about maximizing yield and minimizing labor. In a home setting most commerical growing techniques aren't relevant.

Very healthy bare root.

This plant came to life within a week of planting, and now after 1 month of growth is very vigorous.

My Three Bare Root Currant Plants

Extremely well packed. Still damp when arrived. Socked and planted into pots for later transplant in Northern California. Already in Leaf. Very pleased with everything.

Jonkheer Van Tets Currant

Absolutely wonderful!!! Much larger and healthier than I was expecting.


Plants looked good but only 2 of them took in the ground. The other 2 stayed alive, hopefully they come back next spring. Little disappointed for the cost that the one didn't make it.
