Grapes


WHITE GRAPES . . .   The season begins with Mexican Perlettes in early Spring marked by extra sweet large bright green berries.  We then progress into Mexican Thompson Seedless before we hit full stride in California.  The Thompson Seedless is noted for its elongated berry with color ranging from green to cream.  The majority of our white grapes are grown in the Delano, California area of the Central San Joaquin Valley.  This ideal climate allows us to provide high quality Thompson Seedless grapes until the end of November.  We pride ourselves with our 16# Thompson that guarantees you will have late season premium quality.

RED GRAPES . . .   The early season begins with "Cherry Red" Mexican Flame Seedless grapes and progresses into the short Ruby Seedless grape season from Mexico.  The harvesting continues to the Central Valley of California in early June.  The Flame has become the standard for Red Seedless with its sweet taste, crisp bite and elongated berry shape.  Flames overlap with the Ruby Seedless.  The Ruby is noted for its round shape compared to the Flame and is a more dark ruby color.  The Ruby is an excellent late season storage grape.  The last red seedless of the year is the Crimson Seedless.  Crimson grapes have an extremely sweet taste and an extraordinary crunch.  Crimsons are characteristically elongated in berry shape with cherry red color.  The Crimson will provide you with a quality red seedless grape until Christmas.

 

SEEDED GRAPES . . .   Red Globes, the largest of the grapes available, average up to 1 inch in diameter.  These grapes, originally an ethnic specialty, are now a retail standard.  Red Globes have a color standard from cherry red to dark burgundy with large, crunchy berries.  Red Globes are available from the end of the Mexican season until the end of the year.

BLACK GRAPES . . .   Fantasy seedless mark the start of the black grape season out of the warm deserts of California.  These grapes have a distinctive taste of real grape juice, are noted for an elongated berry, and are available until the end of August.  The Autumn Royal, which is now the late season standard, is characterized by an elongated berry and uniformly dark color.  Autumn Royals are available from the end of July through December.
