Find Cotton Candy Grapes Near Me

It is upon us. Cotton Candy grape season has arrived. I am not talking about those Mexican grown ones many of us saw earlier in the year. This helped tide over our lust for Cotton Candy grapes and it also confused a lot of people who heard that the season was already over. No worries my friends, because it’s time for the California season by Grapery to begin. As I do each and every year I have created for you a list of where to find Cotton Candy grapes.

Before we get where to find the grapes, let’s go over a few frequently asked questions I have gotten since the start of last season.

The Frequently Asked Questions

When are Cotton Candy Grapes in Season? 
First you need to know what month you can buy Cotton Candy Grapes in. Cotton Candy grape season begins in mid August and lasts about 6 weeks into the end of September.

I Found Mexican Grown Cotton Candy Grapes, What Gives
International Fruit Genetics (IFG) licenses Cotton Candy grapes to be grow in other countries to extend when they are available and to see how they grow in other places. In late June and July you may have found them in stores under different labels than Grapery includes one that were certified organic.

The Store Told Me Cotton Candy Grape Are Out of Season
I am going to be blunt here. They don’t know what they are talking about. They might think that because of the Mexican grown grapes that came out earlier and ended. Another issue is communication is retail stores from the average worker to the people buying the produce is often poor. And frankly a lot of the workers aren’t really paid enough to care, sad but true. So just go by when Grapery says their grapes are in season (mid August to late September) and keep checking the stores that do carry throughout the season, despite what you may hear from them. Don’t be discouraged. The season is not over until it’s really over.

Can You Freeze Cotton Candy Grapes
Sure why not. People are into eating frozen grapes as a treat on a warm day. I would just recommend if you freeze them to eat them frozen, as they texture will not be the same as they were before you froze them if eat them thawed out.

Are Cotton Candy Grapes GMO?

Nope they are not genetically modified to taste like Cotton Candy. Click here to learn more about how they got grapes to taste like Cotton Candy.

Can I Buy My Own Cotton Candy grape plants
Sorry. Grapery doesn’t license then out to private growers. As previously mentioned they are grown commercially in other countries. But you could still make your own cotton candy. That would be kind of cool 🙂

Where to Buy Cotton Candy Grapes

The following is a store listing of stores that have carried Cotton Candy grapes or other Grapery grapes (like Moon Drops and Gum Drops) in the past. These are your best chances for grape finding success. Some of the biggest supporters of Cotton Candy grapes are Wegmans, Sprouts , Whole Foods Market, Publix, and the Fresh Market. IF you got one of these stores nearby there is where I would start.

When I hear a store has got them, I will add the to the list under the confirmed heading. Keep in mind, stores often sell out – because they are that good. And they may not have a constant supply. Its best to call ahead of you are making a long trip.
