I picked 5 gallons of mustang grapes the other day, washed and froze them in ziplok storage bags. How long can they stay in the freezer before going bad? I've heard that if you freeze them, when they thaw they will have a greater sugar content. Thanks for all input.

Freezing helps release the juice, not increases the suger content. Frosty nights does that when the grapes are still on the vine.
I would keep fresh fruit frozen for a year. I have found lost bags in my freezer that were years old. They were just fine. Thaw and eat. If they taste good then use them. Badly freezer burned food does have a unique flavor. Not bad for you, just yucky.
