    Post thought of the sentence

    I like grapes. This implies many grapes. But would it imply to different kinds of grapes, or only one kind of grapes?

    Is 'I like a grape' correct?

    If yes, would it imply to only one kind of grape?

    If it is wrong, how would I say it in the normal way.

    "I like grapes." This says that you appreciate grapes in general. "I like a grape" is wrong. You could say, "There is a particular kind of grape that I like."
    It would be much simpler to say, "I like white grapes", (or any variety).
    You could say "I would like a grape" if you want to eat one.
