Have you ever seen those huge red grapes at the store? Those giant grapes are usually labeled as “globe grapes” or “holiday grapes”. They taste the same as regular grapes, so the only difference between the huge grapes and normal grapes is their size.
On the picture above you can see the size of those grapes relative to my hand. Don’t those huge grapes look kind of weird? When you think of a grape, you just don’t think of something so giant 🙂
When you bite into the giant red globe grapes, the first thing that comes to mind is that they are so juicy. Because of their large size, there is just so much juice in each grape! Grapes are naturally juicy fruits, and the larger the size of the grape, the more juice and less skin you taste 🙂 The red globe grapes are also extremely sweet.
Are the red globe grapes seedless? I’ve encountered the red globe grapes both ways: seedless and with seeds. I hate the grapes with big seeds, so I always examine the grapes package carefully before buying to make sure it says “seedless”. If the package says “Red Globe Grapes” or “Holiday Grapes” without the word “seedless”, I will pass. It must specifically mention that the grapes are seedless!
Also, those huge grapes tend to have one tiny seed in the middle even when they are seedless. I just ignore the seed and swallow it with the rest of the grape. The tiny seed I can deal with, but I certainly don’t want to eat the grapes with multiple big seeds.
When the store has both regular grapes and the red globe grapes that are the same quality and price, I usually go for the smaller regular grapes – I just prefer my grapes to be normal size. But if the huge red globe grapes are cheaper or fresher than the smaller ones, I’ll get those giant grapes and have fun eating them – so sweet and juicy.
