Growing and harvesting
Once rooted, redcurrant growers place the shrubs 1.50 metres apart, to give them room to grow. After planting, some of the branches are pruned back. Harvesting starts when the berries turn red – and, therefore, ripe. The pickers carefully remove the berries from the bush by hand, with a small knife.
Next, the fruits are packaged and stored at the correct temperature. The growers use special storage boxes for this purpose. The harvest period lasts around 3 weeks. Thanks to refrigerated storage in boxes, growers can draw on their stock of redcurrants for a year. The fruits are transported to Nature's Pride in the correct packaging per order.
