Amazing Benefits of Grapes

Hyderabad, December 22: Grapes have been cultivated for thousands of years and have been revered by several ancient civilizations for their use in winemaking.

There are many types of grapes including green, red, black, yellow and pink. They grow in clusters and come in seeded and seedless varieties.

Grapes are grown in temperate climates across the world, including Southern Europe, Africa, Australia and North and South America. The majority of grapes grown in the US are from California.

Grapes offer a wealth of health benefits due to their high nutrient and antioxidant contents.
