Do grapes explode if you microwave them?
Answer 1:

I have made the experiment myself and the grapes spark very much. At this point, I turned off the microwave oven in order not to damage it or/and the grapes. It would be interesting for you to do the experiment and find out the answer to your question by yourself. I am sending two links where you can follow the instructions to perform this experiment. It is worthwhile to do it.


Good luck!
