Grapes are the berries that come from the vitis plant and they come in a variety of colors from red to yellow.You can consume grapes in a variety of ways, from grape jelly, grape seed extract, grape juice and raisins.
One of the first places we find grapes referenced in the Bible is in Isaiah 65:8, “As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it...”
