About: These purple gems are drool-worthy. The Concord grape is a punchy, luscious fruit named after the Massachusetts village of Concord, where it made its premiere in 1854. The grape derives from the “Vitus labrusca”, or “fox grape”, a musky, sweet, “slip-skin” fruit.
Nutritional Information: 1 cup of the fruit contains 62 calories and a mere 0.3g of fat, along with 13 mg of calcium!
Storage: Grapes will last about 5-7 days in the fridge. Keep sealed in a plastic bag and do not wash until ready to eat.
Tips: Concord grapes are great to freeze and use later to make jams or jellies. To freeze, simply wash grapes and remove stems, then place in an airtight container or freezer bag and freeze. The grapes will last up to one year while frozen!
