How Timely: Mutant Red Grapes

Would love to know what exactly happened to this mutant bunch of conventionally grown red grapes?

I have no clue how these grapes were cultivated, but something clearly went cataclysmically wrong here. The grapes are crammed up against one another, not dangling from the stems. And the main stem is totally gnarled.

It’s just plain weird and kinda scary. I ordered these grapes from Fresh Direct, a local online grocer. I bought these grapes because they were on sale (busted), foregoing organic for an attractive price point. What a nasty surprise I got, and oh so timely after the release of the Stanford study on organic food v conventional. Forgot more nutritious, I just want a bunch of grapes to look like a bunch of grapes!

I can’t wait to get back to the farm tomorrow. Wolfe Spring CSA, here I come!

  1. I’m sure you’ve heard of the dirty dozen? Don’t buy and more importantly, don’t eat conventional grapes. Period.
