Suffolk Red Vines

Vines

Description: Suffolk Red is a new seedless variety that produces a large bunch of bright purplish-red eating grapes. A fruity, sweet flavour bursting with juice making them perfect for wine-making or juicing, and they can be eaten fresh from the vine. Good winter hardiness for all areas across the UK, even for Northern gardens. Has a natural climbing habit which makes it suitable for growing outside. After the bush has fruited, a display of stunning red and orange autumn foliage appears on the bush.

History: Bred in the USA.

Outdoor Vine Growing Conditions: Vines need reasonably deep, free-draining soil and plenty of sunlight to ripen properly and will happily grow on any good garden soil and sunny site in southern Britain. They can be trained against walls, on trellis or over arches. Remove all flowers for the first two years after planting. Allow only a few bunches of grapes to grow for the first two years.
