  • Medium-sized golden/amber berries
  • Medium size clusters
  • Hardiness zone: 5a (-23 ° C)

  • One of the hardiest seedless green variety amongst the”non-hardy” cultivars
  • Disease resistant
  • Vigorous vine that supports large clusters
  • Responds well to cane girdling and gibberellic acid treatments in order to increase the size of the berries and make the clusters more compact
  • It is the most successful table grape released from the Cornell University grape breeding program (1952)

  • Released in 1952 by the New York State Experimental Station in Geneva, New York (USA)

*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 …)
