Deep purple skin on a rather large grape. Surely this size is overcompensating for something. It’s practically an inch long.
Crunchy and juicy. No seeds (yay), but has a thick noticeable peel (boo)
Peel is a little bitter. The inside of the grape is fine, but rather bland.
OVERALL Overall Rating:
This grape really only has size going for it, which is a problem because it practically takes two bites to eat the whole thing and I don’t really want two bites of this one. I mean, its fine, but just another dull, boring grape that’s crunchy and juicy with a weirdly thick peel. Blech.
The Autumn Royal is a very recent grape bred at the Agricultural Research Center in Fresno. It is one of very few seedless black grapes.
