What a flavorful grape!
Grown in my backyard, (on wood fence) in South West Berkeley, on the Oakland, and Emeryville border. Prolific growth of leaves the first year. One bunch of grapes the 2nd year. Huge harvest the 3rd year, (last year), and OMG! Laden with so many bunches, perhaps 80lbs minimum. Superior, high quality, intense flavor, and very sweet with seeds barley noticeable. Grape much larger than previous years. The birds have gone and told ALL their relations, so we put a net around the vines, but the birds just laughed and found there way through. We will begin our first ever batch of wine tomorrow!!! (Bought plant at "Annies" in Richmond, CA)

Bought this some years ago from Annies Annuals and planted in my San Leandro garden in a nice sunny hillside. Nothing much happened for the first couple of years and then it took off and started producing wonderful classic bunches of purple to green grapes. Nice tart/sweet flavor, small seeds and very vigorous vines.

The info on this plant isn't right in my experience. The fruit (which is prolific for me here in Pleasant Hill, CA) was pink the first 2 years, but this year is a combo of green and purple - as if it were genetically spliced. Still, it is as sweet as candy, though very seedy and small. The harvest isn't spring either, it is late summer. Ours is August through September. The only downside to this wonderful plant is that it attracts many animals - however, it does produce plenty to share...
