Concord is an American grape that was selected from the wild in the mid 1800s. Its name is appropriately chosen from its area of origin, Concord, Massachusetts. This varietal produces medium-sized clusters of large berries. It is considered a ‘slip skin’ grape because its skins is easily separated from the pulp during the winemaking process. Concord is celebrated during the month of July.
