Ripening of Grapes All varieties of grape are preclimateric -- they don't ripen once they're taken off the vine.



What is the difference between climacteric and non-climacteric fruit?
  • The reason for this is that there are two different types of fruit: climacteric fruit and non-climacteric fruit. What is the Difference Between Climacteric and Non-Climacteric Fruit? Climacteric fruit will continue to ripen after harvest, while non-climacteric fruit will not continue to ripen after harvest.
