Fruit of the Flowering Currant

There are several species of currant, that, owing to their rather exceptional flowers, are popularly designated as "flowering currants." Some of these grow wild in the Rocky Mountain regions, others along the Pacific Slope. In the wild species, the fruit is usually not of a high order, but in one case at least this has proved capable of great development through selective breeding. In general, the wild currants are worthy of more attention than they receive from the fruit developer.
