Originating from Germany, this is an excellent white wine dessert grape that produces generous bunches of good-sized seeded grapes, which will be ready to harvest in autumn. When ripe, these grapes have a light Muscat aroma and a delicious flavour. The leaves turn fiery colours in autumn before they drop.
- Garden care: When planting incorporate plenty of well-rotted organic matter in to the planting hole. Prune in mid-winter, cutting back to fit the available space, and again in mid-summer if necessary.
