Muscat Beauty is a delicate and attractive pink-brown seedless grape with pale green translucence. The berries are small to medium in size, round in shape and borne on a fairly loose bunch. They are soft to bite, with quite unnoticeable skin and the flesh is almost liquid as it flows through the mouth.
Although not the easiest grape to handle and distribute, the flavour makes it all worthwhile. Sweetness is excellent, and the Muscat and Sultana flavour is deliciously fragrant.
