Cotton CandyÂ® grapes are the sort of fruit that you just want to keep eating. The berries are fairly bold, round to elliptoid in shape and with an attractive yellow-green skin colour. There is a slight crack on biting, and very little discernible bitterness to the skin. The flesh is slightly crunchy, but it is the flavour and sweetness that stand-out. Some describe the flavour as of butterscotch, and there is certainly something about candy that immediately hits the taste-buds. For sure, with its high level of natural sugars, this is a grape for the sweet-toothed amongst us.
