Seeing red almost translucent currants makes my mouth water.. wonder if this variety is edible?
yes ..., this variety is edible.
Thanks a lot ... for posting this beautiful pix, on the basis of this a could id my tow species, i.e. Ribes himalense & Ribus alpestre. I will try to post them for validation some time later. Thanks again.
A feedback from another thread from ...:
"............ I note that images a Ribes from VOF have been named as R.himalense. This needs to be checked. Flowers of the Himalaya
say "in drier areas only" for this species and I do not think VOF counts as a 'drier' area. Also, if one refers to the book, 'Valley of Flowers' it has Ribes glaciale Wall. .............."
Thanks ... for pointing out the need for check of the posted plant's ID.
Keys in Flora of Pakistan lead me to Ribes glaciale Wall. only.
Thanks very much ... for scrutinizing the ID. I will revise my notes at flickr at the soonest.
