Uva Fragola

Uva fragola from Vittorio’s garden in October.

Uva Fragola which translates to Strawberry grape got its name from the sweet pulp that it produces.

Harvest time

It has the sweetest taste and stores well. You can eat them, make wine or a liquor with them, however, it is illegal to sell wine made from uva fragola and has been since 900′ in Italy. So, if you’re lucky, you’ll have an Italian neighbor who has vineyards and vineyards of this sweet grape in his giardino as I do.
