The pearl sized berries are loosely clustered in elongated strands and have a somewhat translucent sheen. Their brilliant red skin encases a pulpy flesh that contains 3-12 tiny edible seeds. Less robustly flavoured than black currants, but more tart than white currants, they offer flavours of raspberry, cranberry, and gooseberry.
Red Currant is rich in B vitamins and Vitamin C which is beneficial for the skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights and even reverses free radical damage in skin cells.
