Ribes bracteosum (Stink Currant) is a species of currant native to western coastal North America.

It is a deciduous shrub, without thorns, growing to 3 m tall. The leaves are 5-20 cm broad, palmately lobed with five to seven lobes. The flowers are produced in spring after the leaves emerge, on racemes 15-30 cm long of 20-40 flowers; each flower is 5-10 mm diameter, with five white or greenish-tinged petals. The fruit, born in clusters, is dark blue with a whitish bloom, edible but sometimes unpleasant.
