Produce 101 - Grapes

Produce 101 - Grapes

Picking the best
When selecting grapes, choose those bunches that are well formed and look fresh. Color is a good guide to ripeness; fully ripened grapes are fairly soft to the touch and tender to the taste. Unlike other fruit, grapes will not ripen in color, sugar content or quality after they are harvested from the vine

Store grapes unwashed in an open plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to a week. Freezing grapes is a simple but useful way to store grapes, simply wash and pat dry the grapes, and then arrange individual grapes in a single layer on a sheet freeze and then transfer to an airtight container or plastic freezer bag.
