Jupiter’s Indian grape season is well underway with multiple varieties shipping globally until around week 14.

Our plethora of table grapes grown in the Nashik region are benefitting from the ideal growing conditions of warm days and cooler nights which enhances the sugar content of the berries.

Freshly harvested ARRA 15

Our white grape, ARRA 15 (ARRA Sweeties™) are harvesting this week. Known for its crisp and juicy eating quality as well as its long shelf life, the ARRA 15 also has an impressive shipping performance.

The Indian ARRA 15, exclusive to Jupiter Group, have an ideal bunch shape and are sized at around 19mm with an average brix level of around 16%.

Update on ARRA 32 Rootstock

Back in November we announced the arrival of the fantastic black seedless variety ARRA 32 (ARRA Mystic Dream™) rootstock into India. ARRA 32 is a sensational grape with huge berries and a meaty eating quality.

The flourishing rootstock are benefiting from a high level of care and expertise and are due to be planted later in the year around June/July.

An Indian season update

The weather in India has been slightly cooler than usual this this season but that looks set to improve in the coming weeks. The weather is due to get warmer, around 25-30ºC in the day and around 15ºC overnight. These temperatures will benefit the ARRA variety and give the vines a good start as pruning commenced this week in readiness for the next harvest which will take place around week 19/20.
