Blackcurrant is a shrub in the Grossulariaceae family originating in northern Europe. It’s mainly known for its black fruits and leaves, which have medicinal properties. It is a bushy shrub with purplish leaves that give off the distinctive smell of the fruit. In the wild, the shrub grows along streams and in swamps. It can reach up to 1 or 1.5 metres in height.
There are no records of blackcurrants being used for eating until the sixteenth century.
