Do the red currants have that smell, or is it likely that they are mislabeled?   I should find out this year in any case, since they are pushing some flower buds.Muffy BarrettSsssouthern WISpring is taunting us with sleet, rain, and snow today.  And lots of wind.

I bet you got a mislabeled black currant.  I've grown feral seedlings of Red Lake, and I've grown Red Start and Jonkheers van Tet, and none have had that distinctive black currant smell.
