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."
