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
