Grapes are the fruit that grow on a woody grape vine. The grapevine belongs to the family Vitaceae. Grapes grow in clusters of 6 to 300, and can be black, blue, golden, green, purple-red and white. They can be eaten raw or used for making grape juice, jelly, wine, and grape seed oil.
Wine Grapes exhibit a long season of growth requiring 100 days or more of warm days and cool nights. Accordingly, they grow between thirty and fifty degrees north or south of the equator which provides for the ideal climate.
