Activity > Learn about grapes
A grape is a small juicy fruit, with a smooth skin that is in various colors, some are green, red or purple. Grapes grow in bunches on woody vines, called grapevines.

We can eat grapes raw, or drink the juice and make jelly/jams and fruit spread.  A raisin is any dried grape. A currant is a dried Zante grape. Grape leaves are also edible 

Concord grapes are dark blue to purple and are used to make the most popular grape juice and jelly, a staple food in the U.S. Concord grape jelly is typically used to make peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

The recommended daily intake of fruit for children is one 1 to 1 1/2 cups a day. 1/2 a cup of raisings is approximately 16 grapes.

Grapes ripen towards the end of summer where they grow best; the peak harvest continues into fall (autumn). A cornucopia (horn of plenty) is often filled with grapes and other fruit and vegetables, and it is associated with Thanksgiving and the autumn harvest.

A fun way to eat them is to wash them, take them of the bunch, and freeze them.
