Seasonal high quality Shine Muscat
Direct from Ota Wholesale Market in Tokyo
By professional buyers, picking the quality that is most worth for the price this season.
It offers a refreshing aroma unique to Muscat varieties and is seedless, with low acidity and abundant sweetness, making it enjoyable to eat with its skin.
Grapes are fruits where sweetness is more concentrated at the top of the bunch.
It is recommended to start eating from the lower part of the cluster and move upwards to savor the stronger sweetness.
To preserve its freshness, it is advisable to wash the grapes right before consumption.
A green seedless grape, this one in particular is a favourite amongst many. Growing up to a large size of 4 centimetres in diameter, they are a sight to behold.
Boasting a defined aroma that permeates your nostrils soothingly, there is a distinct crisp when bitten. Immediately, your mouth is filled with an explosion of a sweet and slightly floral flavour, accompanied by a soft and delicate consistency.
*We will use foam polystyrene for packaging, considering factors such as damage prevention and hygiene.
The History of Shine Muscat
For shine muscat to grow at its finest, it requires thick fertile soil and exposed to plenty of sunlight.
The more sunlight helps ensure that the sweetness stays strong and concentrated in each grape.
An important and prominent step in the cultivation process is covering each cluster of grapes with a paper bag.
This is done for numerous reasons such as protection from pests and disease, improving the consistent colouring of its surface, and preventing any sort of physical damage like blemishes from the elements.
How to Store Grapes?
Grapes are a fruit that doesn't have a long shelf life, so it's wise to consume them as soon as possible.
The best way to store grapes is in the refrigerator.
The white powder (bloom) on the skin of grapes serves to maintain their freshness, so it's advisable not to wash it off until just before eating.
If you want to extend their shelf life even slightly, you can use scissors to cut them individually and place them in a storage bag or an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can also freeze them in this state.
When you're ready to eat, simply take out the portion you need and give them a quick rinse with water before enjoying.
When cutting the grapes from the stem, it's better to use scissors rather than pulling them off by hand.
Pulling them off by hand can create holes where the stem was attached, causing the juice to leak out and accelerate spoilage.
