Best to Buy
Choose bunches that are somewhat tight, with fresh stems, grapes firmly attached, and skins intact and without mushy spots. Avoid mold-spotted, wrinkled, raisin-like, or sticky grapes.
Prep & Store
Keep grapes refrigerated, as they are ripe when they are picked and warmer temperatures will cause them to wither or ferment. Under refrigeration, grapes will keep for up to two weeks. Keep grapes on their stems, washing right before serving.
Grapes are an excellent source of vitamin C. Grape skins contain the phytochemical resveratrol.
