This is one of the best black grape fruit trees. It bears masses of fruit that have a delicious sweet flavour and can be used to make excellent wine too.
As this deciduous plant requires shelter from cold winters and frosts, it is highly recommended that it is used for greenhouse or conservatory cultivation only. A protected site where full sun or partial shade is available is also suitable, preferably against a south facing wall. However when planted outside, it will only fruit after a long, hot summer.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
