Look for plump, evenly colored grapes: green should have a yellow shade to their color; red should have no green undertones. Avoid grapes that are falling off their stems easily.
Store unwashed grapes in the bag you bought them in, in the fridge, for not more than 3 to 5 days. Rinse in cold water only before eating.
