Ribes lacustre - Thorny Currant

Grossulariaceae

Location: Montane

Description: One of several species of Ribes in the area. Currant jams and jellies do not seem as popular here as in Eastern European countries, but I sure eat a bunch when I see them. This variety has black berries which taste... well... let's just say they're no raspberries. Native here, invasive elsewhere.
