When an uncurled fern frond first peaks through the soil in the spring, it is called a "fiddlehead". Fiddlehead ferns offer an earthy, nutty flavor that has been likened to the taste of asparagus, artichokes, and mushrooms.

Witch Fingers® Grapes
Inventory, 16 lbs : 0
Witch Fingers® have a peculiar elongated shape that tapers at one end, much like that of a chili pepper. They grow in tightly compacted clusters that can become quite heavy due to grapes’ larger than average size. The thin and tender skin is light red to maroon with green tinges, while the translucent inner flesh is crisp and juicy. Witch Fingers® have a very sweet flavor that is low in tannin and acidity with an overall classic grapey taste that is reminiscent of plums.
Witch Fingers® grapes are available in the summer.
Witch Fingers® grapes are a seedless table grape prized for their unique shape and concentrated sweet fruity flavor. They were created by the Grapery® in Bakersfield, CA by a process of hybridization, using hand pollination and selective breeding. After years of experimentation, the Witch Fingers® variety was released without any use of additives or GMO’s.
Witch Fingers® grapes are a good source of antioxidants, flavonoids and vitamins A, C and K.
Witch Fingers® grapes were grown to be table grapes, enjoyed fresh out of hand. Their long tubular shape also lends them to more diverse culinary applications than other small round grape varieties. They are large enough to be split in half and stuffed with a salty cheese to complement their sweet flavor. They are also excellent roasted with salt and lemon or blistered over high heat and paired with sautéed bitter greens or sharp Brussel sprouts. Other complimentary flavors include, almonds, walnuts, pistachios, pecans, hazelnuts, pork, poultry, duck, rosemary, fennel, fennel seed, mint, endive, yogurt, blue cheese and goat cheese.
First grown in 2002, Witch Fingers® grapes were developed through a breeding program with International Fruit Genetics and the Grapery® of Bakersfield, CA. These finger-shaped grapes are now grown exclusively at only one vineyard in the San Joaquin Valley and are packaged for commercial markets nationwide. They are part of a line of original grape cultivars which also include Flavor Promise®, Flavor Pops®, Tear Drops®, Cotton Candy® and Moon Drop® grapes.
