Chilean table grapes continue to harvest

Now around the half-way stage of our Chilean table grape season, we’re looking forward to sharing more of our red and black varieties, in greater volume.

Last week we packed the last of our delicious new variety, ARRA 15 (ARRA Sweeties™) for the season and started with the initial volume of our stand-out black variety Maylen®.

This week our Maylen volumes are increasing as the quality has reached the optimum level for harvest.

With this table grape variety we aim for a brix of around 21% as the sweetness is ideal to complement the unique flavour.

The weather in Chile

Two weeks ago, around 21-23mm of rain fell in the central and southern areas of Chile which has impacted the availability and quality of our white grape. This has resulted in an earlier finish for our white grape than anticipated.

An update from the market

Due to the rains seen earlier in the season, there continues to be a shortage of white seedless grape in the market.

Our Crimson Seedless are packing during March and benefit from a fantastic shelf-life, great taste and improved colouration.
