    Originating from Germany, this is an excellent white wine dessert grape that produces generous bunches of good-sized seeded grapes, which will be ready to harvest in autumn. When ripe, these grapes have a light Muscat aroma and a delicious flavour. The leaves turn fiery colours in autumn before they drop.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate plenty of well-rotted organic matter in to the planting hole. Prune in mid-winter, cutting back to fit the available space, and again in mid-summer if necessary.

Hello, These plants are quite hardy and should be fine growing in milder parts of the country, particularly if you have a sheltered, South-facing wall. I would probably not advise it though if your garden is particularly exposed.

Grape vine problems I have a very old grape in my green house which upto 3 years ago produced grapes in abundance. They were late (September) and black so I presume it is a Hamburg. It was there before I arrived at the house and infact I had a green house built around the vine as the old one had fallen down. I guess it is at least 25years old. I now have a problem with it. Every year the vine starts life very well then it seems to get a sort of scaley insect on it which does not seem to move but the whole new growth gets covered in them. When the fruit appears, it grows quite well to start with and then the grapes go hard and get a white powdery coating all over them The growth then seems to stop.Any ideas of the problem.? Michael

Hello Michael, Grapes are prone to a number of different pests and diseases, and I suspect that yours are suffering from both scale insects and powdery mildew. For more information on these annoying problems, just click on the links below.
