Arra 32 is a large-berried black seedless grape with a narrow ellipsoid shape. The skin colour is a dense blue-black with peel that is thin and not particularly noticeable on biting, with no bitterness. The flesh has a gentle crisp-crunchy texture and is very juicy, with good levels of sweetness, though with minimal flavour.
Growers are attracted to Arra 32 as a very fertile late-season alternative to Autumn Royal (in fact 15 days later), which hangs very well on the vine. It has medium chill requirements, and can grow in the Tropics.
