Positive Weezingreens On Oct 11, 2002, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

Ribes triste grows wild all over the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska, allow roadsides, in wet meadows, along streams, and often in logged areas. Its berries are a bright red, smooth in texture and quite good to eat. Berries appear on drooping stems & ripen in July. The bark tends to shred, and the leaves have a saw-toothed edge and a maple leaf shape. This plants habit is to sprawl, so staking might be advised.
