Carolina Blackrose Grape
Grape 'Carolina Blackrose' is a vigorous vine with large bunches of long, oval, firm and juicy black grapes with seeds. Copes with warm and moist coastal areas and resists mildews.
When dormant over winter, grape plants can usually cope with temperatures down to -15 degrees C. In early spring when new shoots are emerging, frost of -3.3 degrees C or lower for several hours can kill green shoots and flowers.
• Pollination Group: most grapes are self-pollinating so only one plant is required for fruit set. Having other grapes nearby can improve pollination success.
• Uses: eating
• Harvest: early to mid season, February to mid March
• Features: suited to summer rainfall and acid soils
