❁ For eating fresh, choose table grapes. They have thinner skins and are sweet and juicy. Grapes grown for juice or wine have thicker skins and much more sugar.
❁ Look for firm, plump grapes that are firmly attached to green, flexible stems.
❁ Avoid grapes that are shriveled, sticky, have brown spots, or with dry, brittle stems.
❁ Grapes are commonly purple, red or pale green. They may be seedless or have seeds. Try different colors, sizes and textures by choosing the variety that is lowest in price.
