As a fan of grapes; and I don’t mean the mass produced balls of sugar water, but grapes will real flavor, this is my time of year. This past week alone I have enjoyed three different grape varieties that were packed full of flavor. The variety I am going to talk about today is called Canadice or Candace. It is a red grape that I picked up at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market this past weekend. This variety ripens in mid-August to early September. It can be grown in zones 5-8, although in warmer zones it may not be seedless. It’s a good choice for the home gardener.

My Experience with these grapes
Tart/Sweet: Sweet
Seed/Seedless: Seedless
Grape Flavor (Rating Scale 1-10): 8

Overall Feeling: The best tasting red grape I have had to date. No regular grocery store red grape can compare to the flavor of Candace. This is not a slip skin grape, so the skin stays on when you bite into it. If I were to grow my own grapes this variety would be on my list to try. If you have the opportunity do not pass these grapes up.
