Delaware grapes are small to medium in size and oval to round in shape, growing in small, tightly packed clusters. The smooth skins ripen from green to pale red or pink and are delicate and can tear easily. Delaware grapes are a slip-skin variety, which means that the skin can easily be removed without damaging the flesh. The translucent green flesh is juicy and may contain some seeds. Delaware grapes are aromatic and have a sweet, mild, and slightly fruity flavor that is often likened to gummy candy.
Delaware grapes are available in the summer through fall.
Delaware grapes, botanically classified as Vitis lubrusca ‘Delaware,’ are an American hybrid that grow on vigorous deciduous vines and are members of the Vitaceae family. Delaware grapes are named after Delaware, Ohio, which is where they are believed to be from, and are most commonly used in the United States for wine production. They are also extensively cultivated in Japan for their sweet flavor and are used as a table grape and for desserts. Delaware grapes are high in sugar at 18-20 brix, which is a measurement of sugar content in produce.
Delaware grapes contain vitamins A and C, potassium, thiamine, iron, and calcium.
Delaware grapes are best suited for raw consumption and are a table grape best enjoyed chilled. They can also be used as a dessert grape and to decorate desserts, such as cakes or tarts. Although they are a red-skinned grape variety, they are used to make white, rose, sparkling wine, and iced wine. The classic Delaware grape flavor profile in wine is one of delicate sweetness on the palate, with hints of green apple and a slight taste of spiciness. Delaware grapes pair well with desserts such as white chocolate mousse, coconut ice cream, vanilla pound cake, cheesecake, and fresh fruit pannacotta, and savory dishes such as steak tartare, beef salad, and melon wrapped prosciutto. They will keep up to a week when stored in a ventilated bag in the refrigerator.
Delaware grapes are extremely popular in Japan where sweet, juicy fruit commands the highest prices. The Shimane Prefecture, which is a mountainous, coastal area on Honshu Island, is the biggest producer of Delaware grapes and these grapes are often sold as table grapes in supermarkets in Japan and also South Korea. Delaware grapes are prized for their delicate skin and that they can be peeled by pinching the berry gently between two fingers. They are a popular seasonal gift in Japan, where giving high-quality fruit to friends, family members, or colleagues is an age-old custom.
Delaware grapes are native to the eastern United States and were first recorded growing in Delaware, Ohio in 1849. The parents of the hybrid grape are largely unknown but are believed to be derived from one of the oldest American varieties of grape, the Vitis lubrusca, which was found growing wild from New England to Georgia. Delaware grapes were then imported from North America to Japan in the 20th century, and by the 1960s, Japanese farmers had developed a seedless variety since the Japanese prefer easy-to-eat fruit. Today Delaware grapes can be found at specialty markets in the United States, South Korea, and Japan.
