Sunview Marketing International of California Inc., Delano, is shipping Sweet Carnival golden seedless grapes again.
The popular grapes are available from early September into December.
“These amazingly sweet grapes naturally taste like the classic carnival treat you remember,” Mitch Wetzel, vice president of sales and marketing, said in a news release. “We have been getting an amazing number of calls from customers and consumers anxiously awaiting the arrival of our Sweet Carnival this season.”
The grapes were developed using traditional breeding methods and their flavor fully develops when the grapes turn a golden color.
“The color is the sign we look for and then we know the grapes are perfect,” Wetzel said in the Sept. 2 news release. “This morning I was out looking at the grapes and the aroma during my walk through the vineyard took me back to memories of my childhood at the state fair, walking past vendors selling their sticky sweet spun sugar treats.”
Wetzel told The Packer in June the company has "substantial increases in volume" of the variety.
