About Grapes

Grapes are the world’s most abundant cultivated fruit. There are thousands of varieties, both sweet and sharp tasting. Most of the world’s grapes are made into wine.

Seeded or seedless, they make a delicious and natural ready-to-eat snack.

Selecting

Go for plump, fresh-looking grapes that are firmly attached to their stems. Although table grapes generally include larger varieties, size is not a measure of taste.

Storing

Storing

Table grapes do not ripen after harvest and must be handled with care. But under the right conditions, they can be stored for up to a month.  Some Dole Grapes are transported at a temperature of around -1°C in 95% humidity, arriving fresh and juicy in the shops. You can keep grapes at home for 4 or 5 days at room temperature and longer in the refrigerator.

Eating

Grapes are a truly versatile fruit: crushed for juice, dried for raisins and currants, or eaten out of the hand as a natural and delicious snack at any time. Skin colours range from pale green to red and blue-black, and the fruit also varies in flavour.
