The Blue Grape is a thick-skinned, lightly-perfumed fruit native to South America. Once past the rubbery rind, the flesh reveals a gelatinous, delightful pulp with mild sweetness. It’s like a grape, but with a more exotic signature. 

When blooming in spring, the Blue Grape tree intrigues! The tree creates white, stringy blossoms which grow right off the trunk and down the tree branches, decorating the tree with glorious ornamental flowers awaiting potential pollination.
