About us

Members of the Snake River Table Grape Growers Association grow several delicious varieties of commercial table grapes in Idaho and surrounding areas. This relatively new industry produces grapes that ripen in late summer and fall, after the season is finished in growing areas like California, providing growers with local, national and international markets for their fruit.The table grape industry is in its infancy. During the past decade, the number of growers and acres of grapes planted has steadily increased.  Most growers have standardized on a red flame type of grape called Alborz, although many growers have additional varieties as well.
