Citation: Ramming, D.W. 2005. Notice to fruit growers and nurserymen of the release of Autumn King grape. Agricultural Research Service Publication. Technical Abstract: Autumn King is a very large, white seedless table grape that ripens very late. It extends the season, making very large white fresh grapes available to consumers until December. The berry is naturally large, which will save growers production costs by eliminating some of the costly cultural practices for increasing berry size. The fruit is cylindrical to ovoid in shape, firm texture with neutral sweet flavor. It has a medium to tight cluster and it has done well in storage trials.
