Sweet Celebration is one of a new generation of red seedless grapes with excellent eating qualities. The berries are medium to large sized and generally round, and the colour is a pink-red to magenta-red depending on where it is grown. Berries are crisp with very little mouth-feel from the skin, and the taste is nicely balanced between sweetness and acids. This is a very sweet grape, but with the acid balance, may have wider appeal.
