Black currants. Sadly we cannot grow them here in NH, it is illegal, because they are considered a vector of White Pine Rust. Sad

I grow Black Cherry tomatoes and they aren't even close to black. They are a dark wine red and often with green shoulders. But sooooo tasty and very prolific. We love them at our house. I even roast and freeze them for winter. Mmmmm good!
