“The juice of the grape is the liquid quintessence of concentrated sunbeams.”
Cultivation of the domesticated grape began 6,000–8,000 years ago in the Near East. Grapes can be eaten raw or they can be used for making wine, jam, juice, jelly, grape seed extract, raisins, vinegar, and grape seed oil.
- Grows in clusters of 15 to 300 and can be crimson, black, dark blue, yellow, green, orange and pink.
- While almost all of them belong to the same species table and wine grapes have significant differences, brought about through selective breeding.
- Most Modern table grape cultivars tend to have large, seedless fruit with relatively thin skin.
Resveratrol is found in widely varying amounts among grape varieties, primarily in their skins and seeds. Resveratrol provide health benefits, such as:
- reducing susceptibility to vascular damage
- potentially decrease blood pressure
