Blackcurrant Laxton's Tinker is a fruitful and hardy deciduous shrub, acclaimed for its abundant production of large, juicy, black currants. The berries, rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, are ready for harvesting in mid-summer and can be used in a variety of culinary applications including jams, jellies, and baking.
Laxton's Tinker thrives in full sun to part shade and prefers moist, well-drained soil. It typically grows to a height and spread of about 1.5 metres, making it suitable for smaller gardens or growing in a large pot. This variety is resistant to some common currant diseases, adding to its appeal for home gardeners. Annual pruning helps maintain the plant's shape and promotes a more robust fruit yield in subsequent years.
