Grape America

America Grape

Vitus aestivalis hybd

America, a variety with only American grape species in it's parentage, a cross of Vitis llncecumll with V. rupestris. America is actually very hardy, able to survive -30 to -35 degrees and grow well up into Minnesota, but in the cooler summers of such northern areas the fruit is too acid. Except for that it would be as close to a "universal" grape as any, with disease resistance that allows it to grow well into the humid areas of the mid South. The black berries have colored juice and a flavor like black currants with a dash of wintergreen.

I've never noticed America needing a pollinator, but it is reported to have female flowers. Ours is planted next to our Mars Seedless grape which is perfect flowered as is our other varieties in the row. So best to choose another variety and not plant America alone till this is cleared up.
