Description

This University of Arkansas seedless grape has medium to large slipskin berries that turn from crimson to deep blue at maturity. The flavor is classic foxy ‘Concord’. The fruit is actually at its best a day after picking, when acids go down a bit. On young vines, clusters are loose and straggly, making for a light crop. After a few years, as the vine matures, the clusters become better filled. Greater disease resistance and cold-hardiness than most seedless grapes, though it still needs as much disease control as ‘Concord’. One of the last to bud out in the spring, which helps it avoid late frost. Ripens about three to four weeks before ‘Concord’.
