California Table Grapes
The first organic California table grapes of the season have arrived at Earl’s Organic. Grapes come in three colors-red, green and black. The season starts in May out of the Coachella Valley, near Palm Springs and the Salton Sea, with early varieties such as the red flame, fireball and green sugarone. As we move into the warmer summer months the growing areas move north up through the entire San Joaquin Valley, producing the popular seedless green Thompson and red Crimson varieties. Although there is still production out of Mexico we have chosen to only carry local California grapes. California grapes are available for most of the calendar year and can be found through January.
*There are over 80 varieties of table grapes grown in California
*Grapes are considered berries, with an average of 100 berries on a bunch.
