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, with a touch of Thompson sweetness. When it comes to eating, though, we think their very best quality comes from the Thompson side of the family – they're seedless! Yes, friends, seedless! If you're fans of Concord grapes but 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 but don't like seeds, Trader Joe's Thomcord Grapes are for you.
And if you like a value – and really, who doesn't? – then our price of $2.99* for a one pound container is absolutely for you. You'll find Thomcord Grapes in our fresh produce section.
