Currant, a small seedless raisin, used in making baked goods and desserts. It is not related to the common red currant found in American gardens, but is really a tiny grape. The fruit was originally grown in Greece, and gets its name from the Greek city of Corinth. Most currants used in the United States are imported, although the fruit can be grown in California.

The currant is a variety of Vitis vinifera of the grape family, Vitaceae.
