Petite Pearl Grape


Petite Pearl Grape

Late. TP 2-1-24 (MN 1094 x ES 4-7-26) Tom Plocher intro, 2010.

Small dark blue thick-skinned berries in small compact clusters make a nice vinifera-type dry red wine or rosé.

Grower Andy Farmer calls it “very complex with lots of spice, attractive earthy aromas and jammy fruit. Substantial tannins for a fully hardy grape and a long finish. This may be an excellent blending component to add complexity and softness to most northern red wines.” Good to blend with Marquette to create a Cabernet/Syrah/Merlot-style wine.

Highly resistant to disease and withstood no damage at –32° one cold Minnesota winter. Slow grower with open habit. Thanks, Tom, for permitting Fedco to be one of the few nurseries offering this grape in the U.S. Z4. (well-rooted bare-root vines)
