During my childhood summers I would pick bucketfuls of ripe red currents with my grandmother in WV and then help her make current jelly with them which we enjoyed all winter long on her homemade biscuits.

Red and black:  I love all cherries!

Currant bushes are great for West Coast gardens - will fruit in half shade, pretty spring blossoms. Delicious clusters of tart berries in red, white or black, great fresh or for jelly.
