Extremely vigorous heirloom variety grape vine for Geraldton and our Midwest. Large bushes of delicious black table grapes are produced from this vine in early summer.

Needs annual winter pruning when deciduous and a trellis or fence line to grow along.

When fruiting, we prune off one third of each bunch which increases the fruit size. It also allows air space between individual fruit which reduces mildews . The young leaves at this time of the year also make wonderful dolmades or stuffed grape vine leaves.
