These dazzling, dark-purple gems came to be as the result of crossbreeding Concord and Thompson grapes. They have the blue-black hue and aromatic flavor of the Concord (think of the grape juice or grape jelly from your childhood), with a touch of Thompson sweetness. And while we absolutely love their Concord grape flavor, we think their very best quality comes from the Thompson side of the family—they’re seedless! Yes, friends, seedless! (You may find a small, edible “trace seed,” much like the white seeds in watermelon, but we promise these are free of actual grape seeds.)
If you’re fans of Concord grapes but you don’t like the sometimes-tough skins and you just can’t deal with the seeds, these are for you. If you’re fans of Thompson grapes but wouldn’t mind a bit more intensity in the flavor profile, these are for you. Actually, if you like grapes and would just like to try something new, Trader Joe’s Thomcord Grapes are for you.
If you like a value—and really, who doesn’t?—our price of $2.79 for a one pound container is absolutely for you. You’ll find Thomcord Grapes in our fresh produce section. These grapes are only available in August, so when you see them, snatch them up—they won’t be around for long.
