Do you live in a Northern climate and want to grow seedless table grapes? The Somerset Seedless Grape is the hardiest seedless grape for Northern gardens. The medium-sized seedless fruits grow in small to medium-sized compact clusters—and the fruits have a sweet, unique, strawberry-like flavor and juicy, firm, crisp texture. The grapes exhibit the best flavor when allowed to ripen on the vine until late summer. Grapes can be eaten fresh or made into jelly.
