Like many other fruits, the name Crandall has been used to indicate more than 
one selection. Crandall was actually a selectin of seedlings of a variety of 
R. Odoratum. There are more than one strain or selection that are "named" 
Crandall. Some are better than others but most are very similar.I have a very 
good "CRandall" so I do not propagate from seedlings, but use cuttings or 
suckers that come up around the planting.

There is also a "Golden Currant" and some that are sold as "Buffalo Currant" 
or "Clove  Currants"  that are other selections and are probably produced 
from seeds, therefore may be better or worse than "Crandall", or just 

I like Crandall, and it is a reliable producer, but is not as good as 
selections of R. Nigrum, European black currant. This is just my opinion and 
you need to see for yourself the differance. I am testing some selections of 
R. Nigrum from Russia that are very good, more palatable "off the bush" than 
most of the usual black currants.
