Fruit: Grapes: Muscat

I mentioned Muscat grapes in last weeks Market Recap as tasting, "like certain candy versions of grape flavor, light, and very sweet."At the time I was tempted to use the word 'clean', but floral may be more appropriate. Wanted to add a photo and a few comments on this variety. A useful wine-focused history can be found here. Most of the muscats available locally as table grapes have an almost pearlescent green color that is immediately distinct from the dull finish of, say, Thompson grapes.

The grapes in this photo are about a week old (brown spots are atypical)
