Different type of grape. Golden raisins are dried green grapes; dark raisins are dried red grapes

raisins in America are too boring! In India we used to get a whole range of raisins, size, colour, seeds/seedless, etc. and I understand central Asia is even better! Think of all those different grapes out there, yes, they do make different raisins!
