- <img src="/product_images/uploaded_images/no-victoria.png">
Grape 'Red Emperor' (Vitis vinifera 'Red Emperor') has large red to dark red sweet fruit with seeds. Juicy fruit, nice characteristic flavour, not too sharp.
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: late mid season
• Features: dark red sweet fruit
