This is probably the biggest bunch of grapes I've ever grown. It's from a potted plant of Autumn Royal. This variety has the biggest berries of any grape I grow. The berries on this bunch are smaller than normal. Brix is running about 25. Flavor on this variety comes up short. Bunch is setting on a large dinner plate.

Summer Royal has nearly as big berries and better flavor.

Yeah, AR is a beautiful grape but not very flavorful. I've tried them at the local farmer's markets for a couple of years and the flavor was just never there. I planted crimson seedless per your recommendation and was glad I did. CS is a real winner.

Crimson seedless has amazing holding ability. I've eaten them off the vine in January in the greenhouse. They have pretty good flavor but miniature bunches compared to AR.
