A new Korean grape variety called “Shooting Star”

A new grape variety called “Shooting Star” was recently developed in Korea, which has a much higher sugar content than “Shine Muscat” and a refreshing sour taste.

“Shooting Star” is developed by the Korea Rural Development Administration

Developed by the Korea Rural Development Administration, ‘Shooting Star’ is a new variety that reflects the recent trend of grape consumption that emphasizes taste, convenience, and variety.

“Shooting Star” is expected to be a big hit with Korean younger consumers

Shooting Star’s sugar content averages 19.8 brix (°Bx), two to three brix higher than Shine Muscat, and the acidity is 0.31%, making it moderately refreshing.

It’s expected to be a big hit with younger consumers who prefer seedless, cotton candy-flavored, sweet, easy-to-eat fruit.

What Is °Bx?

The dissolved solids in a liquid are measured in degrees Brix (symbol °Bx), which is frequently used to determine the amount of dissolved sugar in an aqueous solution.

When will it be introduced?

By 2024, the Korea Rural Development Administration plans to complete the seed cultivation screening, variety registration, and farmer demonstration cultivation, and then begin dissemination.

It will be interesting to see if the newly developed Korean grape variety “Shooting Star” can regain the domestic market lost to Shine Muscat and become an alternative to raise local farmers’ income.
