As someone who has had Crandall for nearly 40 years, stake them.  And don't
be afraid to thin the skinny stuff this winter, but leave more older canes
for a while.  This kind of condition usually occurs when you have lots of
new bearing shoots, such as after cutting the plant all off the year before.
 Leave the shoots to get more woody and shorten them back by a third or

Hello All,

Just got back from holidays and my Crandall currants are lying on the
ground.  The crop is so heavy, and the berries so large, they are now
lying on the ground.

Should I leave them alone till harvest and then stake them in the future,
or something else?  Berries are still green.

Never expected berries this big on a currant!

Thanks for any help you can offer.
