Interlaken is not a highly productive yielding grape. It is aggressive with foliage and needs frequent pruning. I made a batch of wine with it and am impressed with the dry crisp result. Very good eating grape all around. Just wish the yield was a bit bigger. I have 5 vines over 10 years old.

Interlaken is a hybrid (Thompson Seedless and American) table grape. Seedless, medium size tapering clusters, small-medium golden berries. Crisp, meaty, sweet, tangy. Good fresh or raisins. Vigorous, disease resistant vines. Mid- late August harvest. Does not require a lot of heat to ripen.

Excellent choice for Pacific Northwest or other similiar climates.
