Do you know what the main problem is with seedless concord grapes?


Every single time I have purchased seedless concord grapes they have had seeds. Every time. It took me 45 minutes to de-seed these seedless grapes so I could make David Lebovitz’s concord grape pie using this to-die-for crust. And the process made my hand itchy. It was totally worth it though. OMG! PIE! Deep, musky, sweet grape pie. Must buy more.

Grapes are in season right now, so get thee to the store.

Seedless Concord Grapes

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★☆

Little globes of dark purple black skin with a pale blue powder looking substance. Pale greenish flesh with bright green seeds.

AROMA Rating: ★★★½☆

Mildly sweet.

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★☆

A dense jelly-like consistency somewhat like tapioca pearls in those bubble tea drinks. Thick skin and a few seeds.

TASTE Rating: ★★★★★

Musky, complicated, deep, sweet grapey flavor with a touch of bitterness here and there from the skin.

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

Oh how I love these grapes. I was so delighted a few years ago when I first had these and could connect the flavor to grape juice for once. I always assumed that was some goofy artificial thing. Now if someone could just explain how we got the watermelon flavor in jolly ranchers, I would be all set. Is there a watermelon like that? YES PLEASE.
