Somerset Seedless Grape

Qty
Item #131224. Ships in a 1 Gallon Small Stark® Container.

Description

A unique, strawberry-like flavor. This heavy bearer will give you compact clusters of medium-sized table grapes that are good for fresh eating and making jelly. The fruit starts out pink, but becomes much sweeter and more flavorful after ripening on the vine until turning a full red color. Moderately vigorous, mostly disease-resistant and very cold-hardy — in temperatures as low as -30°F. Ripens in August. Self-pollinating.

It will be nice to have grapes that are different from the usual store varieties.

To shade the greenhouse roof AND give us fruit.

Several different nurseries described Somerset as the most flavorful very-hardy seedless grape. We live in northern Michigan, so the approximately -30-degree hardiness is important in some of our winters. We lost a few grapes of other varieties the winter of 2014-15 due to a few -36-degree nights. Somerset should have a better chance with a little protection and a bit of luck. Also, the August - early September ripening time is good for our first average frost date.

Wanted something sweet and cold hardy.

I wanted a seedless Grape that can be eaten right from the vine.

One or more of the nine ordered may survive due to cold hardiness, or where it's planted. It's always an experiment (member, Alaska Pioneer Fruit Growers)!

I am looking for a red seedless table grape. I don't want another slip skin grape. Is somerset a table grape?

Somerset
Vigorous growth first summer. Surprised by quite a bit of winter dieback (zone 5 temps) but growing quickly again this spring with several clusters of grapes starting. Produced two small bunches of grapes the first summer which were very small and very tasty.

great unusual grape!
very unusual grape, grows very well, pest resistant, bore fruit in 2 years (and a lot in the 3rd year) can't describe fruit except: lychee mixed with catawba grape! best juice ever (and we have real cold winters (usually))

Progressing nicely
Last year due to waiting on a landscaper to finish work on the property the grape vines remained potted which allowed for some good root growth. During their time in pots they actually produced some time, but flavorful grapes.

This year the vines were planted and are doing well. I am pruning any signs of fruit growth this year so all of its energy can go into the vine growing up a trellis.

So far so good.

Fantastic plant.
Last year, the plant arrived "bare root" - looking like a relative small stick. It grew rapidly, covering about 20 feet on the fence. There were even a handful of grapes the first year. This year, there are something like fifty bunches of grapes. Maybe more. They are not ripe yet, but look really good.

Delicious grape, early harvest
I tried this grape on accident, intrigued by the flavor description. I am very happy with the decision because now, in year 3, it produced some delicious grapes that are ready to pick earlier than most of my other ones. This extends my grape season. The flavor is great. I love it, my wife loves it, the kids love it. This grape is the way to go!
