SPECIAL ALERT!! Grapes - White @ $4kg

The most popular variety – white grapes have a juicy, delicate texture and a refreshingly sweet flavour. They are fantastic when eaten fresh, and they can be added to cheese platters and fruit salads!

 

How do we make sure we provide top quality white grapes?

The secret to providing quality grapes is to check the stem; it’s one of the best indicators of quality. If the stem is dry and shriveled, the bunch is overly mature and will have a soft mushy texture. If the stem is green and fresh-looking, the grapes will be fresh and juicy. We also check the quality of the grape; it should be plump (not wrinkled), firm (not soft) and well-coloured. It’s also important to check for common grape diseases (such as grey mould, anthracnose and rhuzopus rot). Finally, we check to make sure the grape is firmly attached to the stem. All these indicate the grape is fresh, juicy and ready to eat.

Where do we source our white grapes from?

White grapes require a temperate low humidity environment, with a cool winter, a rainy spring and a hot dry summer. They also require sandy or gravely sandy loam soil. The grapes are picked when the bulb develops to maturity in texture, colour and taste (grapes don’t ripen after they’re picked, they must be mature at harvesting time). The best grape growing areas in Victoria are the Sunraysia and Mid-Murray districts, and we try to source our grapes from growers around those regions. If Victorian supply is short, we source grapes from the Riverland area in South Australia, or the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area in New South Wales.

What is the best way to keep white grapes?

Grapes are best stored in an airtight plastic bag in the fridge (optimal storage conditions are 0°C and 90%-100% relative humidity).

White grapes nutritional information

The nutritional benefits of grapes have been enjoyed throughout the ages (at least for the last 4,500 years – they feature in mosaics of the Fourth Dynasty of Egypt). Grapes are a very good source of manganese and they are also a solid source of vitamin C, vitamin B6 and potassium. Grapes also contain Resveratrol, which has been shown to reduce plaque build up in the arteries, and has shown some anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
