ORIGIN:

  • Selected in 1984
  • Released in 2000
  • Origin: Osceola, Wisconsin (USA)

 

Anecdote:

 

Petite Jewel Trollhaugen and Swenson Red – 3 grape varieties offered by Vignes Chez Soi – are “half-sisters” on their mom’s side!

In fact, all three varieties have a maternal ascendant, the MN78 (flower) fertilized, in the case of Petite Jewel by the pollen of the “dad” Canadice (also 1 grape variety offered by Vignes Chez Soi)

 

*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 …)
