Cotton Candy

You have to taste it to believe it, but this grape variety that burst onto the scene in 2011 tastes just like the popular fluffy treat sold at fairs and ballgames. I’m. Not. Kidding. It’s the best of both worlds: They’re nutrient-packed fruit that tastes as sweet as candy (they contain more natural sugar than other types of grapes for an extra hit of sweetness). They’re another mouthwatering hybrid, this one created by mixing a Concord-like grape with another common variety called vitis vinifera. You can spot the light green gems starting at the end of summer until late September. Mark your calendars and don’t miss out…you’ll want to take advantage when they hit the markets—they could easily be gone in a day or two, because they taste that good!
