Worcesterberry

A species of currant (Ribes divaricatum) found across western North America, and thought to be a naturally occurring cross between the American gooseberry and a blackcurrant. Thick woody stems grow up to 2m long and are covered with strong spines, so makes a great burglar deterrent! The fruit are well worth the scratches, dark ink black and sweet, larger than a blackcurrant and make the most delicious jam, or tart filling. Exceptionally tough, these will grow just about anywhere.
