Types of Grapesgrapes

There are  several; types of grapes:

  • Table Grapes for eating fresh and making juice and jelly, can be seedless or with seeds. See this page for a master list and guide to table grape varieties
  • Muscadines and Scuppernongs, Large, very sweet southern grapes with large seeds
  • Wine Grapes... for making wine.
    These are obviously specialized grapes that generally do not taste very good when eaten fresh, but do make excellent wine.  Most are Italian or French varietals (like Pinot Noir) that are grafted onto native American grape roots (like Concord) because the American variety roots are resistant to fungus and diseases that devastate vineyards.

Grape picking tips

  • Pick ripe: Grapes do not ripen after they are picked. Of course, wine grapes are unique and for sweet dessert wines, like Auslese, are often picked after a frost or after they have shriveled.  The wineyard will know what's best for you.
  • Appearance: Look for heavy, firm grapes
  • To harvest grapes, carefully cut the grape clusters from the vine using pruning shears. Be careful not to bruise or damage the fruit or the surrounding vines.
