Translating to “Giant Mountain Grape”, Kyoho grape lives up to its name with gigantic, dark blue to black grapes that achieve nearly golf ball size without any gibberellic acid added! Fruits are somewhat similar to Concord and are slip-skin, meaning the flesh easily separates from the skin. Very unique and beautiful grape for fresh eating.
