Currant
Ribes spp.
A favorite fruit for Europeans, most Americans have not had the opportunity to taste these delicious berries. Attractive additions to yards and landscapes, these very hardy, upright growing shrubs are a striking sight in fruit, with large clusters of pink, red, white or black berries cascading down the heavily laden branches. Currants are rich in antioxidants and are much higher in Vitamin C than oranges. Red, White and Pink Currants are basically different forms of the same species. Currants are self-fertile and hardy to minus 40°F. or below.
