Grapes

grape is a fruit, botanically a berry, of the deciduous woody vines of the flowering plant genus Vitis. Grapes can be eaten fresh as table grapes or they can be used for making wine, jam, juice, jelly, grape seed extract, raisins, vinegar, and grape seed oil.

Description

Green seedless grapes may be round to slightly oval in shape depending upon variety. Their color ranges from yellowish-green to bright green while their inner pulp is semi-translucent. They are sweet and tart with mellow tannins that leave a slight layer of flavor on the tongue. When picking, choose bunches with healthy green stems as this indicates freshness.

The hue of a Red seedless grape can vary widely depending on the variety but usually ranges from a light red to a deep burgundy. The shape of the berry is generally round to slightly oblong and is medium in size. The dusty film or bloom on the skin is produced by cells in or near the surface. This layer forms a natural waterproof coat which prevents the delicate skin from cracking. Red seedless grapes are sweet and crisp, occasionally tart and always juicy.
