Anecdote:

 

This grape variety was part of the hybrid grape development program at the University of Arkansas. The developers of the program decided to give names of planets to some of the grape varieties. As a result Mars, Jupiter and Neptune are others cultivars developed by this program.

 

 

*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 …)
