Table Grape

Warm, dry summers and deep, rich soils provide an excellent environment for Australian growers to produce high quality, green, red and blue/black varieties of table grapes.

Growers or their trained agronomists regularly inspect vineyards throughout the entire growing and harvesting period. They are committed to consistently producing sweet, plump juicy, berries that are uniform in colour and size especially for export markets.

Australian table grape producers generally live and work on their properties facilitating the integral practices of integrated pest management and irrigation scheduling, used in managing quality and quickly controlling any pest or disease which may be present in the vineyard.

With modern growing practices, on site cool room facilities, audited quality assurance programs and experienced in-field quality supervisors, the industry has developed a strong reputation as a high quality counter-seasonal supplier to the northern markets.

Australia's geographical spread of production enables fresh sweet table grapes to be available from November through to May.

Positioned in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia is well placed to provide counter-seasonal table grapes to complement northern producers and help keep your customers supplied with fresh fruit year round.

Table grapes can be picked, packed and air freighted to Asian markets within 48-60 hours of harvest. Alternatively, table grapes sent by sea in refrigerated containers can be in Asian markets within 12-20 days of harvest. Shipping to the Middle East takes a little longer at almost 4 weeks.
