The Cassissier, or "Black Gooseberry", is a shrub native to the temperate regions of Northern and Eastern Europe. It can produce 2 to 4 kilos of fruit each year, harvested when fully ripe at the end of summer. Cassis, nicknamed "long-life factor", was popularized by Abbot Bailly de Montaran in his work published in 1712, "The admirable properties of Cassis".
