A North American table grape grown in the eastern United States and, because it doesn't ship well, found only in the areas where it's grown. The large, juicy Niagara is in season from September through October. It's round to oval in shape, pale greenish-white and has a sweet, foxy flavor. A limited number of Niagara grapes are made into wine. See also grape.
