Niagara grapes are a variety of the North American grape species Vitis labrusca and are used as table grapes and for wines, as well as jams and juice. Niagara is the leading green grape grown in the United States. A purple variety, known as 'pink' niagara (niágara rosada), exists and is the main niagara cultivated in southern Brazil, principally in the states of São Paulo, where the variety first occurred in 1933, and Rio Grande do Sul. The Niagara grape was created in Niagara County, New York, in 1868 when Claudius L. Hoag and Benjamin W. Clark cross-bred Concord grapes with white Cassady grapes. It was first sold commercially in 1882.

Niagara Grape is the most popular cultivar of white seedless grapes. Niagara can be grown wherever there is direct sun and sufficient air circulation. Train grapes overhead onto shade arbors, outdoor living spaces or fence lines. Fruit is sweet and juicy, not acidic like some white varieties. Ripens mid-season.
