Inia One is a black seedless grape with a round to slightly elongate shape. The colour is more of a deep purple than black, and its uniform colour is very attractive on the vine. The berry size is medium to large. On biting, the skin offers little resistance and a slight crunch on chewing, but with very minimal bitterness. The flesh is a clear whitish-green and is very sweet and generally firm and juicy. Later samples may be quite soft, almost liquid, giving a sense of juiciness to the berry, which is also attractive.
Inia One is described as a mid-season, blue-black seedless grape.
