Petite Jewel Seedless Grape
Petite Jewel Seedless Grape is an excellent choice for growers in northern climates and was selected by Elmer Swenson for its cold hardiness, ability to ripen in short seasons and excellent flavor that tastes of strawberries with a bit of a spicy finish. One of our absolute favorite table grapes! Large clusters of small red berries ripen very early in the season and are resistant to downy mildew and black rot. We’ve also been told you can make a delicious wine from Petite Jewel.
