Has anyone sighted this grape at our local farmers' markets?

      I picked some up Kyohos for the first time today at the Manhattan Beach FarMar, $3.50/lb and delicious. They are big and ripe, sweet, juicy and tasty. They are pretty delicate in transport though.

        They were at the Studio City market yesterday -- two vendors selling them. I can't say I get it (they taste like grape jelly, which I don't love) but they're there. $3.50 lb.

          I saw them at the Beverly Hills farmers' market this morning, but was in a rush and didn't stop to taste them. The vendor sold only Kyoho grapes.

            Yep, I went to the Irvine farmers market around 8am and saw a stand selling these. What do they taste like?

              Just saw a stand selling them at the Irvine farmers market this morning. I went late and only very little was left so I can't report on the quality.

                I got to the Pasadena Market about 9 and got to sample a Kyoho -- very good and sweet - reminded me a bit of a Concord. The vendor had plenty.... I just hope he's there next week.

                  Thanks! Wouldn't you know I missed the Irvine market this weekend? I'll try to get there early next week.

                  Yes - today I spotted a new vendor from Temecula who only brough in Kyoho grapes and Japanese melons. This was at the Pasadena Farmers Market.
