Somerset Grape is an early ripening seedless grape that's delicious in taste similar to red strawberry. There has been positive feedback on its hardiness throughout the prairies. One of our premier grapes we offer from our nursery. Grapes ripen around early September and are hardy to -35. Developed by Elmer Swenson.
