I have just tried growing your Victorian colossal pea, with fantastic results. We have a small garden and my wife found these thinking we would get more for the same space as the 'normal' peas. Problem is they are so heavily laden with pods they are tearing from the support frame and I have had to tie them up with soft string. A problem that is very welcome. I have just sown more in the greenhouse to plant out for a later crop. I have also tried your coloured carrots but too soon to try, but I will be ordering more seeds and greater variety in the future. Best wishes

Qty:

An excellent flavoured flavoured pale plum-coloured grape with a very high sugar content. This really is a gorgeously sweet grape to eat - almost like eating a mixture of honey and dessert wine

This is also a popular variety for the English wine industry (rightly so) and grown at our closest vineyard, at Leeds Castle. It actually performs better here in the UK than it does in its native Germany. Alan Rowe , author of the acclaimed book 'Successful Grape Growing for Eating and Wine-Making' says of Schönburger, "if I was planting a new vineyard in Suffolk this would be my first choice".

  • Originally from Germany.
  • Parentage - Pinot Noir x (Chasselas x Muscat Hamburg).
  • Mid-Season fruit ripening.
  • Winter wood ripening is good - so can be grown both outdoors or under protection.
  • Can be trained using either the cane replacement method or spur pruning.
  • Self fertile.
  • Fruit contains seeds.
