Default Why do grapes crack

So, what's the big deal with "grape nuts"?

They're not nuts and there's no grapes in them!!

So, what's the big deal?

I don't know about grapes at veraison may they may behave similarly to other
fruit at ripening.

In tomatoes the cell walls weaken during ripening and the internal pressure
of the cells is all transferred to the skin which often cracks under the
stress.

cracking BRBR

I imagine for the same reason you get cracking in tomatoes. if they are allowed
to get a little too dry and then watered heavily, the soft inside tissue swells
more than the skin can handle it, so they crack. In tomatoes, the solution is
to water more frequently in hot weather & grow crack resistant varieties.
probably true with grapes also.

I think it's the 'malted' flavor (if I spelled that right) that
is somewhat reminiscent of grapes. And as for the nuts, it is
the crunchiness of the grain that reminds a person of that particular
texture.

Were we all as lucky as that breakfast cereal pioneer, we could
all stick a feather in our hat. And rightfully so, too.

Doesn't it have raisins in it? As far as nuts, pelleted livestock feeds
were called nuts at one time, probably the cereal was invented then.

So, what's the big deal?


What big deal?

You really should reference your material, this one is so old that Bob Hope
(MHRIP) never used it.
