What are table grapes?

Every Friday morning where I work they bring in either bagels or donuts, depending on what week it is. Also on Fridays, as well as other random days, they bring in lots of fresh fruit. Today I noticed an empty box ready to be taken out that said table grapes. I’d not heard of table grapes before so I came home and looked it up online.

Table grapes are grapes intended for immediate consumption. They are different than the grapes used for making wine, juice and raisins. They are also the fourth ranked fresh fruit in per capita consumption, following bananas, apples and oranges. So it turns out table grapes aren’t something new, they’re what I buy all of the time. I feel silly now.
