grapes - where's the variety?!

karen | Apr 9, 2003 02:19 PM

I used to live in Berkeley and there was a produce place called Berkeley Bowl that was like Russo's on steriods. The worldwide selection, the was truly heaven.

I happen to be a grape fanatic and eat many pounds a week. I am so disappointed with the ubiquitous three varieties - green thompson grapes, red grapes and red globe grapes - in every supermaket.

I finally went to Russo's after all the rave reviews about their produce. On my way, I dreamt of finding pearlette, muscato, or superior grapes, among other varieties, only to see the standard three mentioned above.

What gives? Where can I find more interesting grapes choices?
