Non hardy variety in Quebec* (requires winter protection)

The Einset is named after Professor John Einset. Professor Einset was one of the outstanding fruit cytogeneticists and fruit breeders of the world. Dr. Einset, (now deceased), was a eminent staff member of the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station from 1942 to 1973. He was there during 18 years as Chief of the Department of Agriculture & Pomology.
His efforts in fruit breeding resulted in several new cultivars and potential cultivars which will have an impact on the grape industry for many years to come. These efforts climaxed in 1972 when he introduced ‘Cayuga White’ the first grape bred by the station exclusively for the wine market. Other new grape cultivars which he introduced were ‘Canada Muscat’ and ‘New York Muscat’ (offered in our online store) (1961), and ‘Suffolk Red’ (offered in our online store) and ‘Lakemont’ (1972).
Dr Einset also cooperated in introducing six new apple cultivars: ‘Wayne,’ ‘Niagara,’ and ‘Spigold’ (1962), ‘Empire’ (1966), and ‘Jonagold’ and ‘Spijon’ (1968). The very high quality apple, ‘Spigold’ resulted from his cytological studies.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “The greatest service which can be rendered any country is to add a useful plant to its culture.”
In introducing several excellent new fruit cultivars, John Einset has rendered yeoman service to his country.
His contributions, inspiration and exceptional abilities have been recognized by all his associates who have had the chance to work with him, and his impact on viticulture in the United States is invaluable and sustainable.
WARNING! This grape variety is not hardy in regions which hardiness zone is under 5 (ex: 4, 3 etc…). Therefore it is imperative to protect the vine in winter (Ex: Cover with geotextile …)
