[nafex] Crandall Currant ripeness

When is the best time to pick Crandalls?  I've never had a big enough
crop before for this to be an issue, but I have quarts of berries
hanging on the bushes.  Most are black, some are nearly there, some are
still kind of green.

Are they best when they first turn black?  After a couple of days?  Can
they all be picked at once or should I pick as each one ripens?

This year's berries seem much larger but less intensely flavored than my
last crop (two years ago.)  Do they get bland when they get too big, or
are these under/over ripe?
