Cold-hardy and one of the finest dessert wine varieties, award-winning Vitis 'Boskoop Glory' is a vigorous deciduous climbing shrub or vine producing sweet and aromatic black grapes. They can be eaten fresh from the vine or used for making wine. Reliable and disease resistant, 'Boskoop Glory' features finely-shaped, dark green leaves which turn vibrant shades of coral, scarlet and purple in fall. Fragrant, insignificant greenish-white flowers appear in early summer, followed by clusters of juicy, blue-black grapes in late summer or early fall. 'Boskoop Glory' is an excellent combination of fantastic foliage that can clothe a structure beautifully and excellent fruit. Give it plenty of sun, a sheltered spot and a sturdy support and it will reward you with its best fruits.

  • Usually ripens mid-early in the season, making it perfect for Northern gardeners. The grapes make excellent wine if left on the vines long enough to boost the sugars.
