ORIGIN:

 

  • Hybrid FF. GLADWIN for the New York State Experimental Agricultural Experiment Hybridization Program
  • Cross: Champion (flower) X Lucille (pollen)
  • Cross made in 1915

Anecdote:

 

Once mature, the entire cluster ripens at once!

This variety is often called “Early Concord” meaning that it has characteristics very similar to the famous Concord but ripens earlier than the Concord.

 

 

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