Concord grape skins

This past fall one of my grape seedlings produced its first grapes and the grapes tasted exactly like the Concord grape. The skin was also pleasant eating and since I have not eaten a Concord grape in years, I can’t remember if I used to eat the skin or spit it out. Are the Concord skins eaten or disposed of? My seedling grape is from a 40 below parent (probably Niels Hansen’s Azita grape from a 1925 introduction of Beta x North Dakota wild Riparia).

I think this is a manner of personal choice. I personally pop the grape then swallow everything. My wife spit the skin and the seeds.
Like you can see… Personal choice.
