Abstract:
At currant cultivars the level of self-fertility can characterised according to the results of open pollination and the differences in berry weight. This character appears in the habits of the racemes as well. For weakly self-fertile or partially self-sterile cultivars it is necessary to use some polliniser varieties to ensure a good yield. Usually, three of four cultivars should be planted together in an orchard.
