White Pearl Currant

White Pearl Currant

White Pearl is unfortunately unavailable for Fall 2021/Spring 2022

Species: Ribes rubrum

History: Developed in Holland, White Pearl currants like all white currants are actually an albino mutation of red currants. This variety has been popular in Europe for quite some time, although aside from its place of origin it appears there is little information on how it came to be. 

Why We Grow It: These delicate translucent berries are white with a pinkish-gold hue, making them delightful to see growing in the garden. They have sweet and mild flavour that is slightly floral. The plant itself is quite cold hardy and bears prolific crops.

Growth Habits and Disease Resistance: Shrub reaches 1-1.5m tall, upright and compact growth habit, produces heavy crops.

Sun/Shade: Prefers full sun (approx. 8-10 hours of sun daily) but will tolerate some shade

Pollination: Self-pollinating

Bloom Colour: Greenish-yellow  

Ripens: Mid July

Storage: Keeps up to two weeks when stored in the fridge

Shipping vs. Pick Up

CLICK HERE to see how shipping compares to pick up.

Shipping: Every year we ship thousands of trees across Canada (except BC due to CFIA regulations). We carefully bag roots in damp sawdust, then box them and send them out via courrier. CLICK HERE to see our shipping policy.

Pick-up: We also have thousands of trees picked up from our nursery each year. The pick-up options is free, though you must wait until you have been emailed a confirmation that your order is ready to pick up, which will have further information such as hours, locations, etc. We really appreciate if you can make an appointment to pick up, then we can be as organized as possible during our busy season.
