Currant is a type of shrub that belongs to the gooseberry family. It is of the Ribes genus. Currant is most commonly harvested for its juicy berries of the same name which are then further proceeded and turned into jellies, jams, and many other preserves as well as used chiefly.

The plant naturally occurs in more than 100 species all over the world. It is native to the region of temperate climates of the Nothern Hemisphere and Western South America. They are also quite popular in North America, especially in the regions of the Rocky Mountains. It is believed that currants have been cultivated sometime before 1600 in the Netherlands, Denmark, and in the regions around the Baltic Sea. It was then taken to America by early settlement. Native North American cultivars were undercovered later.

The fruit occurs in two main colors red and black and is widely used for making jams, jellies, tarts, and pies. Black currants are also used as a seasoning and sometimes turn into various beverages. They contain lots of vitamin C and are an excellent source of iron, phosphorus, and calcium. Black currants are widely cultivated in Great Britain.

Currants contain lots of antioxidants such as anthocyanins. This compound is responsible for the dark color of the berries and helps to fight free radicals. Black currants contain one of the highest antioxidant values for fruit. They support natural immunology as well as reduce inflammation. Thanks to various vitamins they also are beneficial for the condition of the eyes and eyesight.

According to various sources, the largest producer of currants is Russia. Each year Russia produces up to 398000 tonnes of this fruit. The second-largest production takes place in Poland and Ukraine. Almost 662586 tonnes of currant are produced worldwide each year. The least prominent production takes place in Slovenia (5000 tonnes), Greece (8000 tonnes) and Japan (9000 tonnes). Russia produces up to 60.1% of the global total, and 89.4% of the global total is produced by the top 3 leading countries.
