I planted this Bush several years ago and I can't remember what it is.
Is it a blackcurrant?
HRose..........I think so......I'd harvest those few currants before someone else does it for you........lots of hungry birds about at the moment
The leaves look wrong for blackcurrent - I think it's a Ribes (flowering current.)
Here's a pic of the leaves on my Ribes Aureum:
The berries are edible but usually not very nice.
Sort of. It's Ribes odoratum or alpinum or aureum. One of the ones with yellow flowers
Thanks all for your responses - invaluable as usual!!
HRose............. sorry...........could have sworn it was a blackcurrant........didn't look like Ribes I have grown before.
However, always pays to get more than one opinion
They're edible though aren't they Bob?
Yes nut but can be a bit sharp!
Supposed to be very good for you - high in anti-oxidants.
Mine has never made any yet
Think they may make it into a smoothie then.....
