I happen to have these grapes here in India with me, no one seems to know the name of this grape.
It has got a thick skin and thick gelatinous pulp.

    Do you have pictures of the leaves or the whole plant as well maybe? Commented Jan 22, 2021 at 9:17
  • @BenceKaulics no, unfortunately they do not sell it with leaves :( Commented Jan 22, 2021 at 9:58
  • @BenceKaulics any similar species would help, I can then cross reference those with the characteristics. Commented Jan 22, 2021 at 10:01
  • Check if the skin comes off easily, and if the seeds are bitter. This will help with identification. Commented Jan 22, 2021 at 10:54
  • @PolypipeWrangler there are no seeds and yes the skin comes off easily. Commented Jan 22, 2021 at 11:00

Looks like Bangalore Blue, except your sample is seedless.

That is commonly grown in India.

Grapes in the species Vitis labrusca, or crossed with them have the slip-skin characteristic where the skin detaches easily.

  • You may be right, but I cannot up-vote or mark the answer as accepted before I verify it. Oh by the way what if the skin did not come off easily ? Commented Jan 22, 2021 at 11:33

    If skin attached to flesh then I think that it is any other vitus species (e.g vinifera). Commented Jan 22, 2021 at 11:44

The black-purple colour, with seedless characteristic and oval shape correspond with the Sharad Seedless variety, found in Maharashtra state. You might look to see if they come in possibly large bunches, another characteristic of the vine.

There is a Facebook page that claims that Sharad Seedless is a clonal variety of Kishmish Chernyi which apparently is a Vitis vinifera.
