Description:

Kyoho Grapes are a Concord-like cross between Campbell and Centennial varieties. Grown and prized in Japan for their huge size and very sweet flesh, Kyohos are a blackish-purple variety with large seeds. Their high sugar content is complemented by their moderate acidity. They are one of the most widely planted grape variety in Japan, second only to the Campbell variety. In Japan, a favorite dessert is a bowl of cold, peeled Kyohos. The popularity of Kyohos grown in Japan encouraged growers in Chile and California to plant Kyoho vineyards. As a result, we have access to this specialty grape several times a year.
