("Königin der Weingärten" x "Seyve Villard 12-375")
Available March - May, bare-root. Pre-ordering is recommended due to limited available quantity.
"Palatina" is a cross between the "Queen of Vineyards" and the fungus-resistant "Seyve Villard 12-375." A fungus-tolerant, vigorous table grape for sunny southeast to west walls: for pergola, fence, freestanding posts, etc. Good, reliable flowering. Overall very robust with attractive fruit-- excellent presentation quality!
As of the 2nd or 3rd year: medium size, 15-20 cm long, with a regular and high yield.
Green-yellow to golden-yellow with a touch of red, very attractive colour when fully mature! Medium to large size, diameter 1.5-2 cm, taste is fruity and very sweet. Very few seeds-- 1-2 relatively small pips per berry. Skin does not affect eating.
Winner of a Bavarian grape tasting (from approximately 30 fungus-tolerant table grape varieties).
This grapevine tends to rot in humid conditions where there is little sunshine; should be treated with sulphur spray in early summer and harvested earlier as needed.
Early, around the beginning of September. Can remain on the vine for another 3-4 weeks.
"Palatina" is a registered variety, so propagation is prohibited.
