An early midseason, bronze self -fertile cultivar from Ison's. Note that these are southern grapes, not to be confused with v. vinefera grown in most areas of the USA.

Hi, the largest area where VITIS ROTUNDIFOLIA is grown is, as far as I am informed, the Finger Lakes area in New York State, west and sothwest of Syracuse, NY. The grapes are turned into drinkable wine there. This, and another non-vinifera grape are also cultivated "down under".
