I see elongated grapes have arrived in the shop.

This is the first time I have seen these-maybe I need to get out more. I was in Aldi at the time.

These white grapes (green) are a good size-at least twice the size of round grapes. Very firm and equally as  sweet, and seedless too. Am  now looking out for the red elongated ones.

    I love them. They sell them in most supermarkets just now.They're slightly crunchy too  :)

    I suppose the main advantage is to the grower.

    As for us-the the end user, they are a bit easier to hold while  rinsing under the tap. I really like the firmness.

    As they become more popular, I wonder if there will be a slight decline in demand for grapes of the conventonal shape.

    They have even arrived in French supermarkets now. Until a few years ago we couldn't get seedless grapes at all.
