A large, plump, sweet, crunchy and juicy seeded grape: Red Globes are one of the more satisfying grape varieties. These are the most popular grapes in Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, but we have turned our back on them due to pips! True, there are some pips, but there is an art to enjoying these sweet bombs without splitting the seed husk with your teeth.
Red Globe grapes vary from light pink to dark red, but are almost always large-berried and tend to grow on large bunches. They keep well, so tend to have a long season from any one growing area.
