$10 japanese grapes

with one comment

Thiena (the new flatmate) brought these home after a trip to Takashimaya (a big Japanese dept store on Orchard Road). They are $10 Kyoho grapes. My response: DAAAAAAAANG … what kind of grapes are THOSE?

The first bite was strange. They had an almost fermented/wine-like taste to them. They were super juicy with a slightly bitter skin and one single seed. The flesh inside looks like run of the mill grape guts while the skin is a deep, deep purple nearly black color.

After a few more grapes I became a full fledged fan.

I can’t explain it and I don’t want to pay for it but these are the grapiest grapes I’ve ever tasted. They’re like the real, adult version of all of the fake grape candies of the world. They are awesome cold and very refreshing.

Nowadays I find myself in front of the fruit section eyeing these ridiculously priced grapes. Am I balla enough to spare $10 for a mere handful of these babies?
