Red Globe Table Grapes

  • The Red Globe table grape is a variety of very large, seeded red grapes with firm flesh and crisp ruby red skin.
  • It is almost round, similar to a globe and hence the name given.
  • The Red Globe is popular for both eating and decorating during the holiday season.
  • It is mildly sweet and flavorful, not as tangy as Flame or as sweet as Thompson, with plenty of juice.
  • It can be grown outdoors in very warm areas with long growing seasons such as California or Australia, but in most of the world it is strictly a greenhouse grape. The majority of Red Globe production in the US and Australia are exported to Asia.
  • This variety of grape is considered as good quality grape even though it is seeded.
