We’ve grown our outstanding Maylen® grapes in Chile and now they are on their way to premium UK and Middle Eastern retailers.
With an exquisite muscat taste, large juicy berries and impressive eating quality, our Chilean Maylen black grapes were worth the wait. This unique black variety have a natural attractive blue hue to their skin which only offers slight resistance when bitten.
The notable bunch sizes of our Maylen offer an impressive consistency of both size and flavour profile. The XL berries are brimming with fresh and juicy flavour and are around 20-21mm in size. The average brix is between 20-21% with an impressive sugar-acid balance.
A premium and unique variety
The Maylen is a unique and premium black variety that is often described as ‘particularly sweet’ and ‘succulent’. Unlike some traditional grapes, this plump and exciting new variety table grape has an extended shelf-life, ensuring that consumers get delicious fruit that lasts longer on shelves.
Jupiter’s table grapes
Nurtured near the Chilean capital of Santiago, our Maylen grapes are able to take advantage of the optimum growing conditions afforded to them. The South American climate in Chile provides an arid summer which is conducive to quality table grapes.
With a premium quality and extra-large berries that are uniform in both size and taste, we’re delighted that retailers love them as much as we do.
The Jupiter Group is a leader in the global fresh produce market. Ranked 17th in the 2020 The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, Jupiter grows and supplies new and traditional varieties of grapes and citrus alongside melons, pineapples, limes, avocados and kiwi.
