Description
 
Black Corinth is a seedless ancient Greek grape variety prized for its super sweet pea-sized seedless red fruit. The fresh fruit is often marketed under the name "Champagne grapes" in U.S. specialty stores, but despite the name they are not used for making Champagne, nor wine. The dried fruit is marketed under the name "Zante Currants" or sometimes just "currants". Since they are about the same size as red and black currants (genus: Ribes) many people confuse the two. References in period cookbooks to "raisins of Corinth" actually refer to dried Black Corinth grapes. In fact, we get the English word "currant" from the name "Corinth" for small black grapes that have been dried in the sun. In wild grapes, the sexes grow on separate vines with male flowers on one plant, and female flowers on another. Black Corinth is an "almost male" variety in that the flowers have well developed anthers (male), but only tiny underdeveloped ovaries (female).
