Etymology

The word came into English from the Anglo-French phrase "raisin de Corauntz", that referred to small seedless raisins imported from Corinthia in southern Greecemarker. This phrase was first attested in 1334 as "raysyn of Curans" (raisins of Corinth). The word was transferred to the unrelated northern European berries from the genus Ribes when they were introduced to Englandmarker in 1578. The French for grape is raisin and the French for dried grape is raisin sec.
