Using these techniques, producers came up with a great tasting grape with a very interesting look.

The grapes have a crisp, thin skin over pale flesh. Witch Fingers have a very sweet flavor, not overly tannic and low in acidity. The overall taste is reminiscent of plums. Witch Fingers is a grape grown for its flavor and appearance.

Witch Finger grapes are grown exclusively for commercial distribution at a vineyard near Bakersfield, California.
