900 Series Grapes are the top 5% of grapes imported into the country. They are first graded in Chile and then are rechecked at the US port by the same person who has been doing for 10-15 years.
The grade/series is determined by size, appearance and brix (sugar level). Most stores sell 500-600 series. We want only the cream of the crop for our customers so we are 900 all the way. In the last 3 years, we have even sold the very elusive 1000 series grapes about 5 times.
Jumbo –sized and extra sweet, 900 Series grapes everything grapes should be. You know when you bite into a grape and the skin has just that right about of crispness and the sweet juice bursts into your mouth, that’s what 900 Series Grapes are all about. Available in green, red and black varieties.
