Why aren't my cherry red currants ripening?

I don't know if anyone will know the answer to this but, bought some red and black currants this year for the first time. The blacks are ripening as they should, however, the reds turned translucent, and mildly yellow/and hay colored (kinda like the color of the seeds inside) and have started to actually disintegrate.

We had an unusually wet May, for which many of my plants practically drowned (rained for about 20-25 days, pretty much straight), and it is only now getting hot outside, we truly didn't get summer until about July 5th. Do you think this might be the cause? I'm hoping it greens up next year as well. With the great amounts of rain, the leaves are yellowing and falling off, though, it has re-greened up a bit with warmer weather.

Cheers!
