Robust, hardy, strong-growing and plentiful cultivar. Its fruit are excellent for making wine.

WHERE TO PLANT: A sunny and warm site required. Soil should be humus-rich, fertile, moderately moist of neutral or slightly acidic Ph. Totally hardy (zone 5–9).

HOW TO PLANT AND MAINTAIN: Before planting immerse the plant container in water for 10-30 min.  Place the root ball in a 40 x 40 x 40 cm hole with a 10 cm layer of well-rotten manure or compost, 0.5-1 cm deeper than it was before. Fill the hole with fertile soil. The plants should be spaced at least 30 cm from other plants or from a wall. Prune moderately. To encourage high quality yield, the yearly pruning should be performed (usually in winter, around the second half of February). Frost insulation recommended for ground-grown plants.
