Grape Kay Gray

Kay Gray Grape

Vitus lubrusca hybrid

At our nursery they are sweet and very early ( August 15) and very delicious. In addition to the good resistance to disease, the vine has withstood negative 42ºF without damage. The vines are vigorous. Vines can be trained to cordons with three bud spurs, or to canes to insure more crop. Liked by organic growers, the clusters are pleasant to eat. Kay Gray is a cross between MN 78 and Golden Muscat. Zone 3 - 7.

The following description comes from Lon Rombough, a grape enthusiast,author,nurseryman living near Portland, OR.

Kay Gray. A white grape bred by Elmer Swenson in Osceola, Wisconsin. Found almost by accident. One year, Mr. Swenson was ill and didn't spray his vineyard. One seedling vine stood out for it's health and freedom from downy mildew. The clusters and berries are many, with a labrusca flavor. Flavor varies with climate, ranging from a rather ordinary labrusca to a pleasant fruity flavor depending on where it is grown. In addition to the good resistance to disease, the vine has withstood negative 42 degrees F without damage. The vines are vigorous. Vines can be trained to cordons with three bud spurs, or to canes to insure more crop. Liked by organic growers, the clusters are pleasant to eat. Kay Grey is a cross between MN 78 and Golden Muscat.
