Red Lake is a cultivar of red currant that is grown primarily for fruit production. It is a compact, drooping deciduous shrub that grows to 3 to 5 feet tall. It is a mid-season cultivar, tolerant to some leaf diseases but susceptible to powdery mildew.
Red Lake has beautiful clusters of deep red berries. This very upright, vigorous, productive shrub bears tasty fruit.
Red currants are best known for their wonderful jellies, but with their bright red color, they are also a brilliant addition to summer salads and drinks. Red Lake is very productive and one of the best tasting red currants.
The currant (genus Ribes) is from the Grossulariaceae family, native to temperate regions of the northern hemisphere.
It likes rich and well drained soil with a good water retention capacity. The ideal PH varies from 6 to 6.5. The addition of organic matter (compost), manure and mulch (renewed every year) will be beneficial to its production.
When it is not yet bearing fruit, a red currant tree can be recognized from a black currant tree by the absence of odor produced by its leaves when crumpled between the fingers.
The currant tree bears red, white and pink fruits.
