Grapes Back to List
Available all year round, table grapes are primarily supplied by California (May through December), Chile (December through April), Mexico (May to July), Brazil (November-December) and Peru (November-December).

The main white seedless varieties are Perlette, Thompson, and Sugraone (Superior). The main red seedless varieties are Flame, Scarlet Royal, and Crimson. Today, many new varieties are now being cultivated and harvested in California and elsewhere around the world. Autumn King, Luisco, Pristine, and Princess are the newest white seedless varieties, while the newest red seedless varieties are Sweet Scarlet, Timco, Nicolo, and Ralli. The coolest of these new varieties is the variety called Cotton Candy, these taste exactly like Cotton Candy! Keep an eye out for these new varieties as they are being bred for flavor, color, and firmness. Large size berries do help sell grapes, but sellers are learning that flavor is King!
