Red, purple and green grapes on the vine on a white background.

If you enjoy grapes as a delicious and nutritious snack throughout the year, you’ll be thrilled to know California seedless grapes are at their absolute best in August! During this warm month, the grapes are particularly sweet and juicy, making them perfect for a day at the beach or by the pool. If you’ve never savored a bunch of frozen grapes in the summer as a snack or used them as ice cubes (especially to chill a glass of white wine), you’re missing out on a great (and super easy) life hack.

In addition to being a beloved snack, California seedless grapes also provide important nutrients. Looking to include more vitamin K in your diet? If so, a cup of grapes is a good source! While grapes are great on their own, there are plenty of ways to incorporate them into your meals, too. Check out some of our favorite Publix Aprons® recipes that incorporate seedless grapes.

It’s important to wash your produce, but in the case of grapes, wait to wash them right before you’re ready to enjoy instead of cleaning them right after your shopping trip. Be sure to store your grapes in a ventilated bag in the fridge to preserve them as long as possible (for three days to a week).
