good to see you. good morning. you have a lot of different varieties here. >> we have the red grapes and the white grapes or the yellow grapes or thompson seedless. there's a lot of different varieties of grapes. >> i had had no idea. >> in my day -- what happened was -- grapes are available year round. why? because california starts in late spring right through until probably around thanksgiving. and then right through to may. so we see grapes year round. years ago when i was a kid, we had grapes in the summertime until thanksgiving. then we were finished with them. but now we see them year round. the chilean grapes which come out in the wintertime, i really like. i think they do a great job growing them. over the years, 25 years here, i've never talked about chilean
i don't like them. california grapes they let them stay on the vine and get that color. >> that what you look for when you pick them out? >> what you want to look for -- you see that it's what we call a dusty bloom on the outside. >> it's kind of what blueberries have. >> it almost looks like a powder on the outside. what that does is it stops the moisture from coming out of the grape. and that's what keeps the grape fresh. that's what you want to look for. a dusty on the white or yellow, you'll see it. it's easy. when you get to the red ones, you'll see the dusty bloom. sometimes it's easier to see because they're red like this. what you see is what you get with grapes. once the grape is picked off the vine in california, that's when it has all the sugar in it. it will never ripen if you leave it out. what you want to do with grapes is once you get them home, you want them in the refrigerator.
do anything to them until you're ready to use them. because once you wash the grape, it's started deterioration process. then the grape will go baaed. grapes keep for a long time. it takes about five to eight days for the grapes to get from california to the east coast. by the time it gets to the supermarkets or your green grocer, it's another couple days. you're looking at ten days. at home you can still keep them for a week or two in the refrigerator. so they stay a long time. if you want to that's the way my wife betty likes them. especially for the kids, i like to pull the grapes off -- pull them off the stem, put them into a container and then put them in the freezer like i did here. >> they are good. i've been nibbling on these. >> i said that in the tease. it's like an instant popsicle. what it does is -- the sugar from the grape comes out more when it's frozen. and they really are good. it's something -- it's not an additive you have to put to
to see now the the supermarkets are not loose. many years we used to put them out on sheets loose. now they all come in these bags like this. they're easier. they're easier to handle. number one. number two, you're not touching the grape. once you touch the grape, the acid i did from your hand will deteriorate the grape a bit. grapes are out, they're reasonable thus freeze them, o do whatever you want with them. they're out there, available, and good for you. >> i had no idea there was so much to the grape. >> the good life, the grapes. >> they are good grapes. thanks, pete. send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and find him on facebook and twitter. >> thank you. still ahead on today in new york, we'll have a check of our top story including live coverage of this. >> reporter: a young man is dead
i'm ray villeda live at the scene with surveillance pictures police want you to see. that's coming up on today in new york. if you want to soar along the highest, longest and fastest zipline in north america, there's only one place to do it. and that's not the only thing you can only find in new york state. ?? it's all in the catskills. only in new york. new york. it's all here. it's only here.
miranda right now. the rest of the weekend looks fantastic. >> just nothing to complain about this weekend. we had beautiful beach weather week after week. that continues today. i'm sure the roads will be packed with people heading to the shore and out east. nothing going on in the radar picture. we have high pressure and sunshine. temperatures pleasantly warm. 70s down the jersey shore. temperatures will go down a bit as the sea breeze kicks in later this afternoon. before in fire island. loads of sun to the hamptons. waves are pretty light today. 2 to 3 feet on the ocean. there is a moderate risk for rip currents. so you want to watch out for that and make sure a life guard can see you if you're going in the water. definitely want to keep safe. uv index is high, it's an 8. use sun screen to protect
we'll look at the extended ten-day forecast in a bit. over to you. >> thank you. happening now police in hoboken are searching for a driver accused of running down a man and then running away. >> ray villeda joining us live from the scene. ray? >> reporter: good morning. police are on the search as you mentioned of that hit and run driver after a hit and run that happened hours ago. the man's body ended up over there where you see the markings on the a black escalade. that's a shot of it speeding away. police believe it has new york plates. it happened around 4:25 this morning b. police released limited details. just that a man was hut and killed here. neighbors are waking up to this news not surprised it happened here on willow avenue. >> there's a light right there which proves a big point. because there's no lights in the
so people need to really follow the rules, man. like, this is new york. this is packed streets or all one-way roads. they're tiny and cramped. people need to slow down. >> reporter: and as you can see, there are surveillance cameras right outside of this funeral home and they point in a direction of where this hit and run occurred. so police are looking at that video trying to get a better idea of what was on those plates. again, a black plates. if you know anything about this, give police a call. i'm ray villeda, today in new york. >> thanks. it's a case the news 4 i-team has been closely following. a man wrongly convicted after 20 years behind bars made a bold move to clear his name. richard rosario says he was in florida the day of the murder. yesterday prosecutors were ready

officers was former deputy inspector james grant. he is accused of taking money. grecko says she's now a designer and actress and that was an embarrassing time in her life. >> i had no other way to pay my rent or -- so it's not something i'm proud of and i really don't want it to define me. >> the defendants in this federal probe are expected back in court next month. the aid of a man who fell to the tracks. that man tumbled to the tracks at the subway station yesterday afternoon. many managed to move him out bafr train rolled into the station. that man is in serious condition at the hospital. at this point no word on what caused him to fall. the indian point nuclear plant was temporarily shut down again after another mechanical

comforter? or did she want to burn it? >> reporter: he has gotten a lot of random support for his flag flying. even today this visit. >> i wanted to meet the fellow american patriot that's standing his ground. >> reporter: standing his ground but not mad about it. these pictures on facebook drew one comment suggesting she should be shot. something he quickly disavowed. >> somebody said that's why you should have guns. not >> reporter: instead he wonders if some of them wanted their own free trump flags. if not -- >> why am i going to try to make this woman's life miserable? maybe we could work it out. because in the long run, we're all going to have to get along. so let's make america great again. >> reporter: while he sounds like he'd like to debate flag thieves trying to change their minds, he gives no hint that he would ever change who he
