Currants are one of the most traditional British fruits, but they are rarely seen in the supermarkets outside of the frozen fruit section. They are highly nutritious, easy to grow, and can inspire recipes from smoothies to delicious baked desserts and jams.

For the allotmenter, there are small differences in how to grow currants between the colours, but essentially the process, the fruiting season, and the care regime is very similar.
