Sweet Celebration is one of a new generation of red seedless grapes with excellent eating qualities. Its size is medium to large sized and generally round, and the color is a pink-red to magenta-red depending on where it is grown.

Its texture is crisp with very little mouth-feel from the skin, and the taste is nicely balanced between sweetness and acids. This is a very sweet grape, but with the acid balance, may have wider appeal.

Origin: Sweet Celebration is a product of International Fruit Genetics, California. The variety resulted from a cross between Red Globe x Princess in 2001 by D. Cain, which was selected in 2003 and patented in January 2011. Sweet Celebration is a trademarked name.
