Summary

Currants (Ribes spp.) are the second largest group of cultivated berries in Europe with
an annual output of fresh berries over 700,000 tons. The major countries of currant
cultivation include Nordic countries, Poland, Germany, France, Russia and the United
Kingdom with different cultivars, growth environments, and cultivating techniques
among these countries. Fruits of currants have been shown to have a wide range of
beneficial effects on human health. The sensory properties and health effects are of
crucial importance for the industrial utilisation of the berries. Genotypes and growth
environments play an important role in modifying the composition of the berries that
directly defines the nutritional and sensory qualities of the fruits.
