Venus Seedless Table Grape
One of our favorites from the University of Arkansas grape breeding program, Venus is a blue-black table grape with absolutely incredible flavor! Fruits are resistant to cracking in part because they ripen so early, September here in the Northwest. Skins are thick and add great texture to the fruits. Venus grapes store very well, form tight full clusters and ripen all at once.
