Thanks to Kate Frey for sharing this tasty table grape from her home garden in Hopland, Ca. Developed by pioneering grape breeder Elmer Swenson, in his quest to breed a quality table grape that was disease resistant and hardy enough to grow and produce fruit in the cold and short season regions of the upper mid-west of the United States. A vigorous climbing vine growing 10 – 20 ft. tall, bears a heavy crop of crisp and sweet, large round red, seeded-grapes in early fall. Plant in full sun with moderate summer water. A handsome vine to train on a sturdy arbor, trellis or fence.
