Vitis ‘America’ – Blue Seeded Grape – 2-Gallon


A unique variety, ‘America’ is a hybrid of Long Grape (Vitis aestivalis var. lincecumii) from Arkansas and Texas and Sand Grape (V. rupestris), which has a mostly southern distribution. No other grape we offer has this parentage. Despite its southern origins, ‘America’ is extremely cold hardy and can be grown throughout the Catskills. Excellent disease resistance including resistance to black rot. The grapes are uniquely flavored, having been described as tasting like black currants with a dash of wintergreen. Reported to have only pistillate flowers which would require the presence of another grape variety for pollination.
