IamA Grape Technologist - looking after table grapes around the world for the past 7 years AMA!
My short bio: Hi! My Name is Paul Farmer and I'm 27 and live in the UK.
Following a post I made in /r/mildlyinteresting about Moon Drop Grapes where I told people I am a grape technologist, lots of people had questions and suggested I should start an IAMA.
I have spent the last 7 years working for a grape importer responsible for the sourcing of table grapes for UK retailers. I've travelled the world looking at grapes and advising growers on postharvest quality, varietal innovation and various other aspects of grape production. It's quite a unique job and I have a lot of useless information about grapes and other stuff which you might find interesting.
