Very easy to grow and propagate. Purchased bare root vines and had grapes in 2 years but should have pinched them off to encourage vine growth. Very sweet and tasty, but have big seeds. I have since taken cuttings and have at least a half dozen more vines to plant and share.

This French hybrid variety is a favorite with organic growers for quality of fruit and disease resistance. Used to make a dark red Burgundy like wine. Unfermented fresh juice tastes somewhat like cherry juice. Widely adapted, easy to grow, & very early ripening.
