looking for korean grapes
a friend let me sample some of these and they are great! very similar to concord and with a woefully short season as well. has anyone seen them in koreatown markets?
They're called Kyoho grapes.
There's a grower out of Temecula that comes to the UC Irvine and Santa Monica (Pico & Cloverfield one) farmer's markets. They probably go to other FM's, but that's the two I know they sell at.
These are popular in Korea and Japan, so any decent supermarket that caters to those demographics will have them right now.
I just bought some Kyoho grapes today at the Safe n Save market on Sawtelle (the one near Hide Sushi) for $2.25/lb.
I also saw a flier saying they would be on sale at Nijiya market on Sawtelle for $1.99/lb this weekend.
Two weeks ago, I bought them at the Galleria market on Western and Olympic, a 4 lb box for $10.
for the last few years Park's Vineyard had them on Sundays at the Hollywood Farmers Market on Ivar, but I haven't seen them there this year. It's killing me! Another grower there has them - an apple farmer - towards the south part of the market on the east side, but they're not nearly as good.
