The current climate in our Nashik, Maharashtra based vineyards is ideal for table grapes, with this year’s crop looking particularly impressive.

Exclusive Indian ARRA 15 (ARRA Sweeties™)

Now into its second year of commercial production in India, we have seen exceptional quality from our ARRA 15 so far this season.

All Indian ARRA 15 fruit is now programmed with exports continuing to WEEK 7.

Why ARRA 15?

With crunchy berries ranging from 18-22mm, a superb eating quality, good flavour and impressive shelf-life we’re pleased to again be providing this exclusive grape from India.

This exciting ARRA 15 season is due to see its volume double and will see quantities grow over the course of the next 5+ years.

Traditional grapes

Although our delicious ARRA 15 are now accounted for this season out of India, we are looking forward to the forthcoming harvest of our fantastic quality traditional varieties.

This year we are delighted to report on the fantastic development and enhanced quality of our Thompson Seedless, Sonaka, Crimson Seedless and Sharad that are all expected to export from WEEK 5.

A view of the market…

The Maharashtra State Grape Growers’ Association (MSGGA), the main body of grape growers in the state has recently recognised that to be competitive verses other producing countries it will need to review the minimum rupee field price, to keep international export volumes at the required level.

The next few days in Nashik remain ideal for the cultivation of our table grapes with temperatures averaging around 25° and no rain forecast.
