The climate so far this season in the north of Greece has lent itself perfectly to the development of our Northern Hemisphere table grapes.

ARRA 30 (ARRA Sugar Drop™) is an early white seedless grape with a first-rate eating quality. The attractive elongated berries have a well-balanced sweetness housed beneath a crisp and crunchy skin. Notable for their light-creamy colouration, ARRA 30 holds up well both on the vine and in cold stores.

Harvesting: From WEEK 30-

Berry size: 22mm+

Comment: Our second-year production of ARRA 30 in Greece are exclusive to Jupiter Group as the Master License holders for ARRA Varieties™ in the region. These delicious grapes have limited availability and will be amongst the first white available in the Northern Hemisphere.
