The Jonkheer van tets redcurrant or JVT for short is a modern dutch redcurrant variety. it is a hardy plant and is resistant of many common garden diseases.
It produces large shiny bright red currants which are ready for harvesting from early july. The currants are highly flavoured and are sweeter than most redcurrants. The JVT currants go very well with fatty meats such as duck or lamb and make great jellies. Redcurrants are high in Vitamin C and B1 and are said to have stomach calming qualities. The dried leaves also make tea which can be used to ease rheumatic pains.

Red and blackcurrants make a great team and when put together result in yummy jam, summer pudding and pavlova.
