This is a hardy grape vine for cooler climates. Fruit ripens faster than other grapes. This is a climbing vine that can become heavy as it matures, so train to grow on a sturdy trellis. Planting in full sun produces the most fruit. Fruit can become overbearing, and some clusters may need to be removed. Vines should start producing grapes about a year after planting and will be ready late summer to early fall.
