Red Currant (lat. Ríbes rúbrum) - a small deciduous shrub of the gooseberry family (Grossulariaceae).
In the nature, the currant grows in a forest zone throughout Eurasia. Forming thickets, it grows along the watersides of rivers and streams, on forest edges. That's where the name of the plant went from.
Red currant berries contain 10% more juice than black currant fruits. And unlike black currants, leaves of a red currents do not have a specific aroma.
