Valley Pearl

Valley Pearl is an early-season white-skinned table grape (Vitis vinifera L.), typically ripening in mid to late July in the San Joaquin Valley of California. This variety produces 1.3 lb conical-shaped clusters that are medium to well-filled. Berries are spherical in shape, with smooth pale green skin. Optimal berry size, 9 g, can be achieved with one application of GA3. Berries are large and sweet, with a neutral to slightly muscat flavor. Growers may expect >1,100 19-lb boxes of fruit per acre annually. Valley Pearl is patented and licensed exclusively to the California Table Grape Commission.
