One of the hardiest, highest quality seedless grape varieties out there, this is an excellent table grape: sweet, spicy, with strong notes of strawberry. Beautiful pink flushed skin, most decadent if allowed to sit on a sunny window sill for a week or so after harvest. Small-medium sized fruit with firm, crunchy texture. This grape will produce on its own, but will have more bountiful yields with another cultivar for pollination. Good disease resistance. This cultivar is increasingly popular in recent years, and shows good commercial potential.
