trailing black currant
Yet another black currant
It took me forever to positively identify this one,
but now i see it, it is kind of obvious.
formerly saxifragaceae saxifrage family
now Grossulariaceae, bittersweet family
Sept 7 2009 Rainy Hollow (BC)
laxus - loose, distant
It looks like this bush has dropped most of its berries, or have they been eaten?
Very unlikely by people, i find that this berry is yet harder to get to than the blueberries in Rainy Hollow. And not that abundant.
I find the taste superior to that of the black currants around my house, which are R. hudsonianum and R. lacustre.
