Boskoop Glory is one of the hardiest grapes in our region. It is in culture since 1903 and is since then a favourite grown grape overhere in Netherlands and Belgium. It is quick growing and makes long tendrils. In one season tendrils can reach a length of 7 meters. If planted on a sheltered sunny place, for instance a wall facing south, the medium sized blue grapes do ripen nicely in september...sweet and very tasty.
