Sunview Stella Bella Grapes
The Stella Bella green seedless grape from Sunview Vineyards is a relatively new propriety organic variety, launching only three years ago. Sunview is always looking for varieties that are superior in flavor, appearance and berry size through their extensive plant breeding program. It took many years of trial and error for Stella Bella to be developed.
The large sized fruit has a good crunch with an outstanding sweet and refreshing flavor. John Anspach from Sunview Marketing says “the organic consumer wants the fruit to look good and eat good”. Sunview lets the fruit mature longer on the vine to develop a higher brixing sugar level before harvesting. They expect their grapes to have good flavor from the very first harvest.
Sunview is located in the mecca of grape growing in Delano, CA just north of Bakersfield in the San Joaquin Valley. Grapes thrive in the long days of dry heat where daytime summer temperatures can reach over 100 and it doesn’t get much cooler than the 70’s at night. We expect the Stella Bella variety to go through September depending on the weather. This is a grape that is not to be missed!
Frozen grapes make a cool summer treat
Wash and dry the grapes before freezing in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Once frozen store in small zip lock bags for an easy snack.
