A blue-black grape, vigorous and productive, with large clusters of fruit with a wonderful flavour. A great choice for making juice, jelly and of course for eating fresh from the vine or drying into raisins. Also makes a very fruity ruby red wine. The leaves of grape vines are edible and are well known in dishes such as the Greek dolmades (stuffed vine leaves). They can be used fresh, or dried or brined for storage and later use. The fruit also has medicinal uses, particularly as a detoxifier. The leaves can be used fresh or dried to make a yellow dye. Prunings can be used in basketry or other craft work such as wreaths. A useful climbing plant for the sunny edge of a food forest system or to make the most of vertical space in a small garden, and a productive plant for creating shade in summer but allowing light in winter as the vines are deciduous.
