In New Leaf[]

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"Sea grapes are small spheres attached to slender stems on branches, similar to normal grapes. However, despite looking like and being called "grapes," they aren't much like the land-based variety. They grow in warm oceans and are very susceptible to cold conditions, meaning refrigeration is difficult."

In New Horizons[]

Upon donation or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say:

"Sea grapes are a marine algae that look much like their landlocked namesake. That is, they are green pearl-like orbs that cluster tightly along underwater vines. And sea grapes, like regular grapes, are a popular snack food too... albeit of the saltier variety. Fans of the briny delicacy enjoy the way the shiny pearls POP when chewed. It makes one wonder whether sea grape juice might have some appeal? 'Twould leave the drinker with sour grapes, I suppose."
