Frequently Asked Questions


How do I choose the best grapes?
Once grapes are picked they will not ripen further. Look for powdery bloom, more visible on dark grapes—it is a sign of freshness. Use color as a guide to the sweetest fruit.

• Black grapes should be dark blue or purple, almost black.
• Red grapes should be predominantly crimson.
• Green grapes should tend toward light green rather than opaque grass-green.

Avoid wrinkled, sticky, or discolored grapes on withered, brown, limp, or brittle stems.

How should I store my grapes to maximize freshness?
To keep grapes their freshest, store them unwashed in a plastic bag in your refrigerator. Excess moisture created by washing and then storing can speed up their decay, so wash them only when you’re ready to eat them.

What is the white residue found on grapes?
The residue is the waxy coating produced naturally by the grapes, called bloom. Bloom is a delicate white substance common on many soft fruits, such as grapes. The bloom protects the fruits from moisture loss and decay. Simply rinse to remove.

Can I freeze grapes?
Yes. To freeze them, de-stem, wash, and place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet until frozen. Transfer grapes to a freezer bag or container. Frozen grapes will keep for up to two months.

Are grapes that come from outside of the United States as safe as those grown here?
Absolutely! Regardless of their origin, all Welch’s® Fresh grapes must meet strict specifications such as berry size, condition, color, sugar to acid ratios, and bunch size. Plus, Welch’s® grape quality is monitored every step of the way. We use an independent organization to take grape samples and test them for selected residues. Primus Labs are an internationally recognized third-party evaluation and certification organization.
