Using these techniques, producers came up with a great tasting grape with a very interesting look.
Witch Finger table grapes have elongated purple drupes. They look like small maroon chili peppers, tightly clustered together on bright green stems. 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 were grown to be table grapes, enjoyed fresh out of hand. They would make a nice addition to fruit salads, offering something different than the average red grape. Witch Finger grapes pair well with mild cheeses and nuts and make a great snack for kids who find both the shape and taste appealing.
Witch Finger grapes are grown exclusively for commercial distribution at only one vineyard in the San Joaquin Valley near Bakersfield, California. These finger-shaped grapes were developed through a breeding program with International Fruit Genetics, and were first grown in 2002. It took several years of selective breeding to find the perfect crop. They are sold at local farmer’s markets in Southern California and packaged for commercial markets nationwide.
