[Fruit History] Shine Muscat
Shine Muscat, which has been popular in recent years.
About 10 years ago, I didn't even hear his name.
This grape is a relatively new variety registered in 2006.
There are two main types of grapes: the European variety, which is difficult to grow in Japan's climate but has a unique muscat scent that can be eaten with the skin, and the thick skin, which is suitable for the Japanese climate. There is an American variety with an aroma reminiscent of grape juice that is difficult to eat straight.
It is a hybrid grape that is slightly European and made by crossing "Grape Akitsu 21", which is a hybrid of American and European grapes, and "Hakunan", which is a hybrid of only European grapes. is.
The flesh inside adheres to the skin, but the skin is thin and can be eaten with the skin, so there is no need to peel it.
Because it contains many European grapes, it has a strong muscat aroma and a high sugar content.
Shine Muscat is easily affected by climate and soil, so there are considerable differences in texture depending on the cultivation area.
