The Best Grapes in the World

May 15, 2008

Here’s a little food advice from me to you, something you can take advantage of on that grocery store visit you’ll be making this weekend: If you like grapes (and who among us doesn’t?), you need to know that

  • the best grapes in the world come from Chile, and
  • they’re probably in your store now, but won’t be around much longer.

I’m sure it has to do with planting seasons and geography and all that, but Chilean grapes are always the first ones to arrive in your store’s produce section. California grapes will be there soon, but California grapes don’t taste nearly as good as Chilean grapes. Trust me.

So, buy yourself some Chilean grapes — and the really, really sweet ones have a nice, yellowish tint to them (kinda like the image above).

You’re welcome.

    So, what exactly makes them “the best”? Also, which grapes are the “sweetest”? Thanks.

      Hi Bea, I love Chilean grapes because they’re so sweet — especially when they have a little yellowish tint to them.
