Vanessa Seedless GrapeMid. Seneca x NY 45910. Introduced by KH Fisher and OA Bradt, Vineland Stn, Ontario, 1983.
Large bright firm seedless deep red grapes with a fruity flavor make the absolute best raisins we’ve ever eaten. Excellent fresh eating. Medium-sized well-filled clusters on vigorous vines.
Ours had some dieback at –20° but they all re-sprouted from the base and grew back to where they left off the previous summer. Going strong in our central Maine vineyards. Z4/5. (well-rooted bare-root vines)
