Kyoho grapes are a popular variety of grapes that were developed in Japan in 1918. They were made from a crossing of the European Vitis vinifera and the American Vitis labrusca. Their most striking particularity is their sheer size. A single grape usually weighs between 10g to 12g. In fact, the name in Japanese comes from a combination of the character for "gigantic" and "peak".
They are seedless and are not only eaten straight but are widely used as decorative elements for desserts and cakes.
