Reject Grapes

This web page lists the “Reject” grapes – primarily for lack of good berries due to disease, or in some cases unsatisfactory flavor.

Grapes in this trial are evaluated as good, fair, and reject.

Describing taste is admittedly personally subjective:
unsatisfactory, poor, fair, tasty, very tasty, delicious, best.
