"White" table grapes

Table grapes are grapes intended for consumption while they are fresh, as opposed to grapes grown for wine production, juice production, or for drying into raisins.

The grapes which are the most sold as table grapes are Sultana (Thompson Seedless), Flame, Muscat, Almeria and Concord grape.

Table varieties usually have lower sugar content than wine grapes and are more flavorful when eaten. Their flavors, however, do not survive fermentation and their low sugar content means that any wine produced from them is weak, bland-tasting and deteriorates easily. Depending on the market for wine and table grapes, low quality wine may contain some grapes that could also be sold as table grapes, particularly Sultana (Thompson Seedless).
