Muscat Table Grapes

In addition to making delightful wines that taste of the grape itself, Muscat grapes have for centuries been enjoyed as table grapes (and as raisin grapes).

All of the major Muscat grapes used in wine making are also eaten as table grapes and new varieties of Muscat flavored table grapes are continually being developed.

Many of the older varieties of Muscat grapes are seeded and currently some consumers appear to be rejecting seeded table grapes in favor of the seedless variety.

Black Muscat
Popular medium sized dark grape, very sweet in flavour. Early to mid season.

Large crisp seedless dark greenish yellow fruits with delicate Muscat flavor hang in big loose clusters. Also a raisin grape.

Golden Muscat
Produces very large clusters of large, oval, amber berries. Very large and juicy seeded fruit has a mixture of citrus and Muscat flavor.

The skin is firm, and the pulp fleshy, with a mild Muscat flavour when ripe. Bunches are medium to large, conical and well filled.
