Table Grapes

Table Grapes are grapes cultivated for use as a food source. They are not fermented to make wine or made into raisins but are enjoyed right off the stem. There are many varieties of Table Grapes grown in Australia but Crimson Grapes are the most popular.

 

Table Grapes are carefully grown and harvested. They are hand picked to ensure no bruising. This also assures the best selection. The grapes come in a variety of colors and flavors and are ready to eat.

 

Crimson Grapes

Crimson Grapes are enjoyed for their neutral, sweetly tart flavor. They are bright red with firm skins and juicy flesh. They are oval shaped and come in medium sized full bunches. The seedless grapes can be enjoyed as a healthy snack or used to make jams, sauces, smoothies and other delicious snacks. Australian Crimson Grapes develop with natural freshness. The sugars ripen on the vine so the berries do not become sweeter once they are picked. This provides the delicious flavor of Crimson Grapes that is not to sweet and not to tart but the perfect combination of both.

 

Crimson Grapes grow in warm, deep and rich soil. Australia has many regions perfect for growing Crimson Grapes. They are widely grown in Sunraysia and Murray Valley in Victoria, Riverina in New South Wales and in southeastern Queensland. The berries were first planted and harvested in Australia in 1788 by Captain Arthur Philip. Captain Philip founded New South Wales. He brought with him grape cuttings from South America and South Africa and planted a small vineyard. The result was the delicious Crimson Grape. Australian Crimson Grapes are harvested from November to May.

 

Healthy Snack

 

Grapes have been cultivated for 5000 years and provide many health benefits. The berries provide long lasting energy. They are low in calories, contain vitamin K which helps with clotting blood and prevent bleeding and have antioxidants that reduce the effects of oxidation on cells leaving cells healthier. Grapes are known to help in the prevention of many diseases. Risk of diabetes, cancer and heart disease can be reduced by regularly consuming healthy food such as grapes.

 

Choosing the best Crimson Grapes

Because they are carefully selected during harvesting and naturally form full bunches, it is not difficult to pick out the best Crimson Grapes when purchasing. Some things to look for are firm, plump clusters with green stems. The grapes should be bright red, full bodied and best when intact at the bloom. The berries should be securely attached to the stem. They should also have a silver coating which is part of the natural bloom and not dust. This coating naturally protects the grape's freshness.

 

Enjoying Crimson Grapes

Crimson Grapes can be enjoyed when easily stored. They will stay fresh for a few weeks if kept in an airtight plastic container in cool refrigeration. Just store them in the refrigerator and wash just before you eat them. There are many ways to eat Crimson Grapes but the most popular is right off the stem. They can also be used to make delicious sauces or jams. They add a nice flavor to a healthy fruit smoothie. They can be added to salads for a crisp, fresh, sweetly tart flavor.
