Blackcurrant: Black berry, juicy and fragrant, the blackcurrant is the fruit of the blackcurrant also known as black currant. Mainly produced in Poland, it is also grown in the United Kingdom and France, particularly in the Pays de la Loire, Centre, Rhône-Alpes and Poitou-Charentes regions.

Two varieties are grown here: the noir de Bourgogne, forming clusters of small, very dark, shiny, tasty and particularly aromatic berries (25% of production); and the black down, whose large berries are less dense and more watery.
