California Kyoho grapes are available from the summer to fall months.
Kyoho grapes were first produced in 1937 in Shizuoka Prefecture, but were not so named until 1946.
Kyoho grapes, pronounced kee-OH-ho, are big, dark purple, sometimes almost jet black, thick-skinned, extremely showy grapes that offer a superb sweet flavor. The taste, texture and juice are very similar to the familiar Concord grape. A cross between Ishiharawase and centennial grapes. Quite fragrant, the skin and seeds are not edible as both are bitter, but the nearly one-inch of meaty flesh inside is deliciously sweet and very juicy. Containing a high sugar content, this grape's moderate acidity makes a just right flavor balance. In clusters, they resemble a bunch of small plums.
Cholesterol-free, low in fat and sodium, grapes offer some vitamin C, potassium, thiamine and dietary fiber.
Kyoho grapes make a lovely edible garnish to dress up most anything, plus make great-tasting preserves, jam, desserts, toppings and wine. Puree the seeded pulp to make refreshing juice and to flavor iced beverages. To store, place in a perforated plastic bag; refrigerate.
Traditionally a favorite dessert in Japan; simply a served in bowl peeled and chilled. The juice is also used in making traditional chuhai cocktails.
