KYOHO GRAPES are a Concord-like cross between Campbell and Centennial varieties. Grown and prized in Japan for their huge size and very sweet flesh, Kyohos are a blackish-purple variety with large seeds. Their high sugar content is complemented by their moderate acidity. They are one of the most widely planted grape variety in Japan, second only to the Campbell variety. In Japan, a favorite dessert is a bowl of cold, peeled Kyohos.

Kyohos are grown in California, but not in Tennessee. You may be able to purchase bare root plants through the California Rare Fruit Society. (www.crfg.org) Their website has a list of sources for all kinds of plants.

Best wishes with your project!
