You have never had a truly flavorful black grape until you have tried Sable Seedless grapes from Sun World.
I am constantly searching new varieties of fruits and vegetables to try.
I love those moments when I discover something new to bring home.
As the years go on it is becoming hard and hard for me to do that, since I have tried so much.
It's a real treat now. The last place I would ever think of finding some new variety to try would be Walmart - yet that is what happened.
My wife gave me a call while I was out saying that we were in need of more ketchup. Walmart was the closet store, so I just ran in there to grab the ketchup. As I passed the produce section I noticed some different packaging.
Sitting right next to some Princess grape with Elsa and Anna from Frozen on it was a package of grapes that said Sable Seedless on them.
The label on the clamshell packaging said that these grapes have a sweet Muscat and tropical flavor. They had me at Muscat. I love Muscat grapes. They are the rosy colored grapes from Chile that you find in March and April each year.
No doubt I was going to buy these grapes. The grapes were packed by SunWorld.
? My Review
Here is my ratings for these grapes on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the top.
I was very impressed with these grapes. For sure the best grapes ever at Walmart. They were sweet with enough tartness to not be just sweet.
The flavor was unique. I tasted the Muscat flavor for sure, which is strange in a black grape. I could taste a subtle tropical flavor. The grape has a thick skin that was nice to bite into.
The grapes I had were in excellent condition with all the grapes still attached to the vine. Once grapes fall of the vine, they tend to go back faster. Sable grapes seem to hold up very well in shipping. I was quite impressed.
The color of the skin is really more a bluish black that kind of resembles a concord grape. Sable grapes don't taste anything like a Concord, which is the flavor of Welch's grape juice.
