Grape is one of world’s five major fruits, which accounts for one quarter of total fruits productions. Taiwan’s grape was imported from China 300 years ago. In 1961, the Jufong variety was imported and introduced to Taiwan. With the assistance of special production processes, it has become Taiwan’s most prized and highly economic effective fruit.
