Originating from Germany where it is known as Trollinger, Black Hamburgh found fame and favour in the UK after Lancelot 'Capability' Brown planted a vine at Hampton Court Palace in 1768. Over 230 years on, the vine is now famously known as the Great Vine - and rightly so as it is now over 120 feet (36.5 metres) long and produces an annual crop of 500 to 700 bunches of grapes weighing 500-700 lbs (220-320 kg).

Often recognised as the easiest of greenhouse grapes it is a reliable and strong-growing variety that produces a consistently good quality crop of delicious black dessert grapes. In Italy, where it is known as Schiava, it is used for making wines - and this is something we have done with our own crop, producing a delicate rosé wine.

One point to note is that whilst this used to be recommended for protected growing only, we have a lovely productive vine here at the nursery growing outside - though fruit is very late to ripen outside (late October), so in years with an early frost the crop can be damaged.

  • Originally from Germany.
  • Mid-season fruit ripening (late if grown outside).
  • Suitable for outdoor growing in the South of the UK, protected further North.
  • Can be trained by spur pruning.
  • Self fertile.
  • Fruit contains seeds.
