Another old variety of grape available today. Madeleine sultana seedless grape. It is a vigorous early maturing green seedless variety given to me back in the early nineties by one of my oldest and most special friends in Geraldton. Thank you Bobby! Notice how we are growing grapevines on a fence rather than an overhead trellis. This does two things: one we can easily throw a bird net over it once it starts to fruit and two, there is less surface area exposed to the sun on hot days over 40C hence less leaf sunburn.
Nursery is open today, 10am - 5.00pm

Hi Julie - are these table grapes? 🍇😀

Integrating local bushfood, yes local bush food (rather than eastern states species) into your daily diet... Great to see creative local people making local bread with Acacia victoriae seed. ... See MoreSee Less
