Everyone has different tastes, but I like 'Marquis.' When fully ripe, it has
a very strong, simple, artificially-flavored grape candy sort of taste.
Underripe, though, it tastes like 'Thompson Seedless.'
For a more sophisticated grape, I like 'Jupiter', which has a bit of a
I also like 'Reliance' and 'Canadice.' I've liked one more than the other at
times, but I think a lot depends on how they're grown.
The above evaluations are all based on grapes grown near me. Also, I'm sure
there are a lot of other great grapes out there that I haven't tried yet.

I am looking for a few seedless, relatively disease-resistant (black rot,
botrytis, downy mildew, the usual suspects) table grapes hardy to zone 5/6.
They'll be for fresh eating and juice.
Although there are quite a few cultivars out there, I haven't tasted them.
Opinions, please: which cultivars do you think taste best?
