A white grape that has been the mainstay of the seedless grape industry for many years. At it’s best it is irresistibly sweet and delicious, but can be slightly tart in the early season. An elongated berry, with an attractive pale green-yellow skin, and no rudimentary seeds.
Origin: Thompson Seedless is a Sultana grape, belonging to the Sultanina family. This is the modern name given to the fruit in honour of William Thompson, the first man to cultivate them in the U.S. Advanced growing techniques are used to produce the fruit as we know it, rather than the smaller, more straw-coloured original Sultana.
