Thomas Wardle fell over in a branch of major retailer Asda in Peterborough in January 2008 and this instance of slipping and tripping caused him a back injury, the Peterborough Evening Telegraph reports.
Mr Wardle subsequently took legal action against the food store - which owns more than 3,000 premises across the world - for his ordeal and a case heard at Peterborough County Court ruled that he is entitled to a settlement of £10,500.
A spokesman for Asda commented after the case that the company are "extremely sorry" that it failed to meet its usual "high standards" of cleaning up spillages as it emerged that the man had fallen because of a grape.
''We have thorough processes in place to ensure our store floors are kept clean to prevent anyone from slipping or falling," he added.
