Bluebell GrapeMid. MN 158 (Beta x unknown) Developed by JM Dorsey, U Minn, 1944.
Our most popular seeded grape; it does everything well. Extremely hardy, to -30°, labrusca type ripens 2-3 weeks earlier than Concord. While it ripens beautifully from central Maine south, it may not have time to ripen in some northernmost locales.
Delicious sweet flavor makes them excellent for fresh eating, jelly and juice. Clusters of medium-sized dark berries with a heavy blue bloom.
Strong, productive, vigorous—but not rampant—vine. A joy to grow. Immune to most or all fungal diseases. Z3. (well-rooted bare-root vines)
