Vitis 'Brant' (Grape Vine)

Grape Vine 'Brant', Grape 'Brant', Vitis vinifera 'Brant'


Cold-hardy and highly decorative, award-winning Vitis 'Brant' is a large, vigorous deciduous climbing shrub or vine producing sweet and aromatic black grapes. They can be eaten fresh from the vine or used for making a decent wine. Providing a dense leafy cover, 'Brant' features deeply lobed, dark green leaves which turn vivid shades of scarlet, russet, gold and pink in fall. Insignificant greenish-white flowers appear in early summer, followed by clusters of small, edible black grapes in late summer or early fall. 'Brant' 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 study support and it will reward you with its best fruits.
