Grape Varieties

The variety Thompson Seedless is our pride and joy since this is the variety that got us into table grapes.. For this reason, we are particularly proud for the amount of work we put into our products. Since we are constantly developing, we decided to invest in other varieties as well. We adapted the variety Crimson Seedless and by being in collaboration with International Fruits Genetics (IFG), we have adopted the varieties of Sweet Globe™, Sugar Crisp™, Sweet Celebration™ and Jack’s Salute™. In collaboration with the Agricultural Research Organization, Volcani Center, we adopted the variety Autumn Pearl.
