Muscat Grapes

I saw some muscat grapes at the store and decided to try them.  They're yellowish with a pink blush, very sweet and juicy. Doug and I only knew these as wine grapes, but apparently some varieties are table grapes.  They do have the same floral notes that muscat wines are famous for -- almost more like a tropical fruit than regular grape flavor.   Actually, they remind me a bit of other 'blush' fruits I have enjoyed, like the gold raspberries.  These are too soft to cut in half, so if you want them for fruit salad, use them whole.  I imagine they would be awesome for juicing or smoothies though.

I am so buying more of these if I see them!  I like most kinds of grapes, but these are really nice.
