In what will be an unmissable fifth year of production in northern Greece, both our traditional and new variety table grapes are set for a successful season ahead.
Following our Thompson Seedless harvest around WEEK 30, we continue with our farms in the Katerini and Kavala regions where we’ll be harvesting our ARRA™ grape varieties.
ARRA Sweeties™ (ARRA 15)
The first of our ARRA™ varieties, ARRA Sweeties™ (ARRA 15), is a mid-late, unique and popular white seedless variety due to harvest around WEEK 35.
With a berry size of around 20 mm, the elongated cylinder-shaped berries are crisp and firm with an impressive eating quality, excellent sugar-acid balance and impressive shelf life.
The taste is sweet with good brix levels (up to 24brix), and a noticeable background acidity that gives some definition to the slight hint of rhubarb in the flavour.
According to our lead Agronomist Andre, we could expect our best crop of ARRA Sweeties™ (ARRA 15) to date from Greece if the weather conditions remain stable.
Greek grape season continued
Following the ARRA Sweeties™ (ARRA 15) harvest, we estimate to harvest our traditional variety Crimson Seedless around WEEK 38.
ARRA Passion Glow™ (ARRA 19), a natural and sweet flavoured red grape with excellent shelf life will harvest around WEEK 42.
ARRA Mystic Dream™ (ARRA 32) is set to harvest around WEEK 47. It’s attractive berry formation and taste means it’s a firm customer favourite.
To complete our Greek grape season, we have our IFG grape varieties which continue to develop particularly well. Jack’s Salute™, Sweet Celebration™ and Sweet Globe™ varieties will be available from around WEEK 42 onwards.
