Edelweiss GrapeMid. MN78 [(Beta x Witt) x Ontario] Elmer Swenson intro, U Minn, 1980.
Considered one of Swenson’s favorite grapes. Sweet green slip-skin with a white bloom. Good for fresh eating and also makes a nice fruity wine. Large conical loosely formed clusters of medium-size tender juicy berries. Slightly foxy. High sugar content.
Harvest when mature—if you leave them on the vine too long, the flavor strengthens and becomes musky. Vigorous and productive. Disease resistant. Hardy to –30° or –35°. Z3. (well-rooted bare-root vines)
