Taste the sweetness of Australian grapes

It’s harvest season for grapes from the Southern Hemisphere which means the Taste Australia campaign is back to entice customers to try and buy beautiful, sweet and crunchy Aussie grapes.

Taste the sweetness of Australian grapes

Thanks to the diverse geology and unique micro-climates across Australia, grapes are able to enjoy a long production window from November to May.

Rich soils, warm summer days, cool nights, and long daylight hours create grapes with intensified sweetness and an eye-catching red, black or green color.

A top tip when selecting green grapes is to choose a bunch with a golden tint as this means they are sweeter in flavor.

Did you know Australian table grapes can be eaten straight from the bunch? There’s no need to peel or de-seed, just simply rinse before eating and enjoy the taste of an Australian summer.

This means grapes are the perfect addition to kids lunchboxes or a go-to snack at work to re-energize and hydrate active bodies, which is especially helpful when you live a busy lifestyle.

Grapes are a natural superfood and adding a serving to your daily diet will give you a much needed antioxidant boost. They are packed full of phytonutrients including polyphenols, anthocyanin, and resveratrol, which contribute to the protection to eye health and heart disease.

Aussie grapes are particularly good for parents and grandparents as they are low GI food which helps stabilize blood glucose levels after a meal. As grapes contain 80 percent water and plenty of fiber, they also contribute to body hydration and help keep your gut healthy.

To taste the difference, head down to participating supermarkets including Rustan’s, Shopwise, Wellcome, S&R, Robinson’s and other major supermarkets and enjoy seasonal red, black or green grape sensations.
