Blueberry grapes are a small to medium sized, round, seedless grape. The thick skin can range in color from a deep purple, to a deep navy blue, to almost black. Blueberry grapes grow in tight and dense clusters. Each berry has a thicker skin than most grapes found in the commercial markets. It most closely resembles the Concord grape in its “slip-skin” texture and consistency. Blueberry grapes boast a bright, slightly tart, mild blueberry flavor and are very juicy. The combination of the thicker skin and crisp, juicy flesh, create a burst of flavor when bitten.
Blueberry grapes are available in the summer to early fall.
Blueberry grapes are a member of the Vitis labrusca species, which also contains the well-known Concord grape variety. A species characteristic that the Blueberry grape has is a “slip-skin” that allows the skin of the Blueberry grape to easily slip off when squeezed, instead of crushing the pulp.
Blueberry grapes contain notable amounts of antioxidants, calcium, iron, vitamin C, and vitamin A due to their dark colored hue.
Blueberry grapes are great for eating fresh, straight off the vine. Blueberry grapes are also well suited for cooking down into jam or jelly, or pressing to make wine or juice. Pair with fresh, creamy, mild cheeses and higher fat nuts, such as macadamia or hazel nuts.
The Blueberry grape is a new variety to the market and is mostly cultivated in home gardens or specialty farms. The Vitis labrusca species, which contains the Blueberry grape is native to eastern North America.
The Blueberry grape has been proven to grow well in hot, warm, dry climates like inland California and Arizona. However, this variety can also thrive in coastal areas in the Pacific Northwest and Southeastern Seaboard of the United States. The Blueberry grape was introduced to the market in the 2000s. This vine requires deep, loamy, wet, well-drained soil and full sun growing conditions.
