Faith Seedless Blue Table Grape
The latest introduction from the University of Arkansas, Faith Seedless Blue Table Grape is a delicious, non-slipskin blue table grape. Faith ripens early, around late July or early August and has a neutral flavor with fairly fruity notes. Fruits are resistant to cracking after rainfall. The vines are cold hardy in Arkansas and should do very well in the south and on the West Coast, but have not been evaluated for cold-hardiness in colder parts of the US.
