Catawba grape

Pronunciation: [kuh-TAW-buh]

Grown on the East Coast, this purplish-red grape is medium-size and oval in shape. It has seeds and an intense, sweet flavor. The Catawba is available from September to November but is mainly used commercially (for jams, jellies and white wines), and is rarely found in markets. See also grape.
