When to Harvest Sea Grapes
The marble-sized fruits of the Sea Grape have been known for their musky, acid-sweet flesh and gigantic pits. When ripe and purple, you can use the Sea Grape fruit for jams, sorbets and even wine! When harvesting Sea Grapes for your own fresh-foraged snack throughout Summer and Fall, remember the deeper the purple the riper the fruit and better the flavor!
Only partly ripe Sea Grapes, however, have a pretty unassuming flavor, but they could their own unique purpose as pellets to fend off seagulls from your beach picnic.
