Currants, elderberries, and gooseberries are all native to Wisconsin woodlands, fence rows, and fields, often harvested from the wild and are prized for making jams, jellies, pies, and juice. These crops are generally hardy enough to be grown in all areas of Wisconsin and are well adapted for home fruit plantings. Find out about suggested cultivars, how and where to plant them, fertilization and weed control, and insect and pest remedies in this detailed 12-page publication.
