Pacific Trellis Fruit announced it has successfully launched a new black seedless grape, Jam Grapes. This variety is exclusive to its lineup and a result of its close collaboration with Labrunier, Brazil’s largest table grape producer.
“With the increased focus on flavor and taste in new grape varieties, we knew we had a potential winner on our hands here,” comments Josh Leichter, General Manager of Pacific Trellis Fruit/Dulcinea Farms. The Jam grapes, developed by EMBRAPA in Brazil, is described by the company as offering a unique eating experience with their concord-type flavor and high brix.
Pacific Trellis Fruit shared that availability is currently limited, from now through early to mid-January. The fruit is being offered in 2 pound clamshells as well as random weight bags. Leichter added this outlook: “Based on some of the successes we are seeing with the early distribution of the Jam grapes, we expect to have it back for the spring when Brazil starts their first semester harvest.”
