With their unique elongated, pointy shape, it’s now wonder they’re called Witch Fingers grapes! They’re super sweet with a deep, rich flavor, and oh-so-delicious! How cool are these grapes!?
I know, right?
It was such a treat when Melissa’s Produce introduced them to me, that I have to do the same for you.
Sure their unique, elongated shape, and gorgeous deep purple color might have grabbed your attention, but it’s their super sweet, delicious flavor that will keep you coming back for more. And even though they’re incredibly juicy and not one bit dried, they almost taste like raisins.
What are Witch Fingers grapes?
Witch Fingers grapes are a new artisan hybrid of grape, grown exclusively by one producer in California. They’re in season in July and August, but at the moment these awesome grapes seem to be available on a week to week basis, and I’m told that will be the case all month. They’re popularity is growing quickly, so every year their season will become more and more plentiful.
Gelson’s Markets are currently carrying them, but they might be in and out, so call before you head over. I’m sure you can find them in other stores as well — just call first!
And you can always check with Melissa’s Produce, here. (When they have them in stock, you can order directly from them.)
And if you’re simply a grape lover, here a few of my favorite recipes with grapes:
- Grape-Plum Summer Salsa
- Wine Marinated Grapes
- Roasted Hatch Chile Grape Tapas
- Persimmon Grape Udon Salad with Miso Dressing
