Fun Food Fact #89 I Heard It Through The Grapevine

I Heard It Through The Grapevine

Grape growing is the largest food industry in the world as there are more than 60 species and 8000 varieties of grapes.  The average person eats eight pounds of grapes each year.  Brought From Spain. Spanish explorers introduced the fruit to America about 300 years ago.  Grape develops on the vine that can reach length of 15 meters (50 feet). One vine usually produces 40 clusters of grape.

Grapes are used to help cure asthma, indigestion, migraine, kidnеy disease and fatigue. Grapes consist of about 80% of water, which makes them a low-calorie food.   Today, 72 million tons of grapes are grown each year worldwide, mostly to produce wine. The nutrients in grapes offer a number of possible health benefits.   Grapes are versatile fruits used in a wide range of popular foods. They are also packed with nutrients and antioxidants
