Our hardiest grape, the Valiant Grape was the first one to make it possible to grow grapes on the prairies. Valiant has small seeded blueish red clusters of grapes that can take up to -40 degrees Celsius. It has a flavour similar to Concorde grape. Although Valiant can be eaten fresh it makes a good quality juice, wine and jelly.
Even with the hardiness of Valiant, it can still have die back if left on trellis during a cold winter. For best success, laying down vines on ground in autumn before snowfall is recommended.
