Get an astronomy lesson and an after-school snack wrapped into one with these incredibly gorgeous grapes. Mars and Jupiter grapes are hitting the market now — find out why they’re out of this world.


The Flavor: Mars and Jupiter Grapes
The oblong “Jupiter” grapes are reddish-purple with a tangy-sweet flavor. “Mars” are rounder, with deep violet skin and juicy candy-like flavor – very similar to a concord grape.

What To Do With Grapes
Sure, they’re delicious straight off the vine, but don’t stop there: Turn any seedless grapes into homemade jelly for PB & J, try roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper, or turn them into the easiest after school snack around, frozen grapes!

Recipes to Try:
Frozen Grapes
Frozen Grape Slushies

    I just made a grape pie. I know it sounds weird, but it is so good. Make the custard kind. Maybe it's not healthy, but it's heavenly.
