Legalizing Forbidden Fruit is Farmer's Currant Mission
Posted by: The Washington Post Published: Sunday, May 4, 2003

"Quinn has tasted black currants in European jams, vodkas and teas. He heard a local Hudson Valley vintner vex about having to import black currants from Canada to make cassis. He couldn't understand how a product with more antioxidants than blueberries couldn't have attracted a following...This summer Quinn expects to help other farmers expand into the market--as well as reap his own first crop of a currently legal but less flavorful currants."

"Growing most varieties of black currants has, after all, been outlawed in many states for the better part of a century. This spring, New York lawmakers handed Gov. George Pataki a bill that would permit growing them again in much of the state. Quinn makes no attempt to contain his excitement. "New York has never really got a hold of any product as its own," he said. "Currants were its own. I would love to see them become New York's again.""
