I believe these plants are wild Currants. How do you determine if they are an edible variety?

Hi There,

I do not feel comfortable making this kind of call by email. Proper identification is always the key. Even with that, I would not feel comfortable since some people may have allergies to one plant type to another.

You could take it to your local Extension office or a local garden center for proper identification.

I am not sure this plant is a wild currant myself. Currant leaves do not a very strong odor.
