  • Cross: Bath (flower) X Himrod (pollen)

Anecdote:

 

Like several other grape varieties from the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station hybridization program in Geneva, New York (USA), the Canadice is named after one of the “Finger Lakes” located in the  New York State area. The Finger Lakes (Finger Lakes) are a group of lakes in northern New York State, USA, whose elongated shape is reminiscent of fingers.

 

The Canadice is one of the parents of another variety offered by Vignes Chez Soi: Petite Jewel. E. Swenson has used the pollen of the Canadice to make the cross with the flower of the MN78.

 

The Himrod grape -also offered by Vignes Chez Soi – another variety named in Geneva, New York, is one of the parents of the Canadice and served as a source of «seedlessness» for the Canadice; It is for this reason, that the level of resistance to diseases and harsh winters is much greater than that of the other seedless grape varieties named in New York. It seems that the Canadice is doing well in places where the Concord is growing.

 

WARNING! This grape variety is not hardy in regions which hardiness zone is above 5 (ex: 3, 4 etc…). Therefore it is imperative to protect the vine in winter (Ex: Cover with geotextile …)
