Description

The perfect choice for Riesling fans. La Crescent is one of the University of Minnesota’s most popular cold-hardy grapes, with a flavor reminiscent of muscat (likely because it has Muscat Hamburg in its lineage). The fruit has high acidity, and can be used to make off-dry to sweet/dessert and late-harvest wines. Aromas are primarily apricot, peach and citrus. Vines of medium vigor are cold-hardy, disease-resistant and not susceptible to sulfur. Developed by the University of Minnesota and introduced in 2002. Ripens late September to early October. Self-pollinating. May be covered by USPP #14,617 or other patents. ‘MN 1166’ cultivar.

Why did you choose this?
Stark Bro's Store
Two of the four of these I moved from Minnesota to Maine did not survive the transplant. I am replacing them with 2 new vines of the same kind, both purchases from Stark Bros. All my family and friends like Moscato wines and this is a relative of the muscat grape. I've made many fruit and flower wines and want to try home grown grape. My vines in Minnesota had just begun to yeild when I moved to be closer to ageing parents. I left 2 vines of each of 9 kinds behind for the new home owner.
