Product information "Currant Standard Ribest® Violette®"

Maturity: Early to mid-August
Strings/berries: Medium-sized, dark red, on long, loose strings
Flavour: Milder than the old standards Roddneus and Augustus
Growth/health: Upright, very fruitful, must be rejuvenated regularly by cutting out the old shoots, grows very well after pruning, much better than Augustus
Training: Spindle, bush, trellis
Berry standards require almost no space
There is room for them anywhere, even where there is no place (below), i.e. in vegetable gardens, in perennial beds, even in rosaries, or in pots on terraces and balconies. Berry standards grow healthy. The shape of the plants allows them to ventilate better and dry off - so there is less disease and more berries.
