My Hardiness Zone ?
The USDA hardiness zones offer a guide to varieties that will grow well in certain climates. Each zone corresponds to the minimum winter temperatures experienced in a given area. Make sure that your hardiness zone lies within the zone compatability range of this variety before ordering.


This variety is self pollinating.

In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!

Can you eat the grapes? How do you know when they are ready to be picked?
Kimmy A on Jun 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can eat the grapes - they are delicious! I pick them when they are about the size of green
grapes in the supermarket and have the same translucency.
Are the fruits normal size, or dwarf size? I believe the cluster size is small, but are the individual berries dwarf size too?
Snowbunny on May 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This variety is bred (no GMOs) to be a miniature, so the clusters and grape size are proportional to the plant, which only gets to be about 2' tall.

Low-maintenance, produces grapes
I bought this little vine on a whim. I figured either I or our brutal hot and humid summer weather would kill it (I'm right on the Zone 8/9 border). Nope! The first year, this little grapevine produced a cute clutch of grapes. The vine is larger this year and again has grapes growing on it.

While the plant is hardy and a survivor, we've only gotten three mature grapes so far. They were sweet and tasty!

Fragile, finicky
I would not recommend this plant for Northeast locations. It is slow to grow and very fussy about being exposed to heavy sunlight during the summer.

Looking forward to getting some grapes
This is a slow growing plant so far. Planted it last year but have not got grapes yet-think the birds/critters may have got any that it produced last year. I will but up some netting this year.
