The best dessert grape varieties with a description and a brief description

Growing a decent harvest of early-maturing varieties in the Ural vineyards, in Bashkiria or in Siberia and the Far East used to be a wonder, now it is a common phenomenon, spreading even among inexperienced gardeners. In the southern regions of our country and in Ukraine, mid-season and late table and universal varieties of thermophilic culture are successfully grown. Knowing the peculiarities of agricultural technology, amateur gardeners of the Moscow region and St. Petersburg have learned to grow wine grape varieties intended for open ground, rare dessert varieties of grape vines with specific cultivation features. Most often, novice gardeners do not attach importance to the names of hybrids, preferring to work on "white" and "black" grapes. But knowing the names of the species and varieties of grapes with white, dark purple and pink fruits, you can easily understand the agricultural technology of culture and adapt to their characteristics.

The best varieties of white dessert grapes

White-fruited table grapes are good both fresh and processed for compotes and jams. New varieties, developed by breeders, make it possible to obtain large, juicy berries of early and mid-season varieties in the southern regions and in the harsh northern ones. A vine with milky white fruits is a natural phenomenon, the result of a mutation of wild-growing grapes that have lost the ability to produce anthocyanins, which are responsible for the dark color of the berries..

To select the best grape varieties, they are judged according to the following criteria:

  1. yield
  2. qualitative characteristics of fruits (sugar content and acidity)
  3. resistance to diseases of the vine
  4. frost resistance.

Each person has their own preferences. Sometimes large, beautiful berries of modern breeding varieties with a fresh taste may seem unclaimed and ordinary to someone, these gardeners prefer sweet, but small and loose clusters of raisins. For other grape lovers, not only the qualitative characteristics of the berries are important, but also decorativeness, the adaptation of the vine to certain climatic conditions. There are dozens of the newest varieties, which are still difficult to evaluate, but they already have high yields and a bright, rich fruit taste.... For example, Atlantik, a dessert variety with pink, elongated fruits, juicy and aromatic, with floral-fruity notes, a nutmeg variety Silver Alibaba with a harmonious taste of berries and a black-fruited Carmen, an unusual variety Marshmallow with raspberry-pink tassels and a Rostov hybrid Anyuta with a tea rose aroma and dense pulp.

The most delicious pink grapes

Hybrid varieties and varieties of pink-fruited vines are attractive in appearance and do not disappoint in taste characteristics. Berries can be from pale pink to deep raspberry shades, so such grapes are often added to wine and canned.

  • Early Russian - an unpretentious early ripening variety of dessert grapes ripens at the end of July, loose clusters on average gain up to 600 g. The hybrid grows in the south, the Far East, Bashkiria and Siberia. Light nutmeg with an admixture of caramel aftertaste is loved by every gardener of the middle lane.

Be sure to carry out processing from powdery mildew and mildew.
    • Hybrid Transfiguration - these are uniformly colored pale pink, oval berries with a thin skin and juicy pulp. We love the variety from Krainov's "troika" (Yubiley Novocherkassky, Victor, Transfiguration) for its unpretentiousness and a high degree of adaptation to many climatic features. Therefore, the Transfiguration is grown in the conditions of the Siberian summer and in Bashkiria, where the berry has a more intense crimson color. Bisexual flowers are perfectly pollinated. A vigorous plant with regular feeding gives a stable yield - 1–1.5 kg per bunch of grapes, up to 40 kg of selected fruits are harvested from one plant.
    • Libya is the brainchild of V.V. Zagorulko, bred in the 90s. The variety is very sweet (sugar content - 26%), aromatic, non-capricious. Peat irrigation and powdery mildew are rare. The berries are oval, pink-purple, with fleshy, nutmeg pulp and thin skin. Ripening period 105 days. The flower is bisexual. Shoots are cut shortly, for 4-6 buds. Among the shortcomings, shedding of ripe fruits and damage by wasps were noted.

Veles also stands out among the dessert grape varieties. The “parents” of the hybrid are Rusbol and Sofia, amazing in taste and with a stable yield. Veles berries are large, oval, intense pink with a purple tint, the flesh is amber, the skin is moderately dense. There are rudiments in the berries. Veles was appreciated for the muscat-floral aroma of the fruit and the very early ripening period of the first berries - up to 100 days. Vigorous bush, pruning - medium (6–8 buds) sugar content - 23%, acidity - 5 g / l. Covering variety builds up brushes up to 1.8 kg, sometimes more than 2 kg. The fruits are prone to cracking and shedding.

Hybrid Victor from Krainov's "troika" has received attention due to its strong immunity to many diseases of grapes. Winegrowers have long fallen in love with the berries of the variety, which have an unusual shape and with a bright, nutmeg taste and floral notes. Irregularly colored pink-red finger fruits with juicy pulp ripen 110 days from the beginning of the growing season. The average weight of a bunch is 700 g. The yield reaches 10 kg from one grape bush. To obtain a stable harvest, they practice pruning with 4–6 buds and a moderate load during fruit formation. The main advantages of the hybrid form are high sugar content and transportability.

Asian hybrid Rizamat with finger-shaped, large (15–20 g), violet-red berries, distinguished by large clusters - from 1 kg to 2.2 kg. Ripening period - 125 days. The heat-loving variety is intended for cultivation in the southern regions, the fruits are moderately sweet, with a light nutmeg, a powerful vine, pruned into 8-10 buds. Despite the usual taste, Rizamat is loved for its high yield and beautiful grape clusters.

Delicate pink, oval berries of the Gourmet variety in the southern latitudes ripen at the end of July, in the middle lane - at the beginning of August. Author's stamp V.I. Krainova is powerful, branched, with a yield of up to 10–12 kg per plant. When tasting the fruit, fruity notes and a floral-honey aroma are especially noticeable. The grape variety Rumba of the Rostov breeder Kapelyushny is similar to this hybrid; it ripens even earlier than the Gourmet (Red Delight + Cherrel). GF Rumba is very sweet - 23% sugar, with a share of sourness - 6 g / l. Fragrant, juicy berries are perfectly preserved and are not damaged by insects due to the tart, waxy skin.

On a par with these early ripening hybrids in terms of taste, I would like to add V.V. Zagorulko - Sofia, in which the best qualities of two famous varieties are collected - the large-fruited Arcadia and the unforgettable Kishmish radiant nutmeg. Sofia are large, dense clusters (up to 1.5 kg) with pink-purple conical berries, most often they do not contain seeds.

We love Krainov's pink peach breeding for frost resistance and mildew resistance. Flowers are bisexual. The grape clusters of the hybrid are loose, grow up to 1.2 kg, berries with a flavor of nutmeg ripen at the end of August. The variety does not tolerate overload and is picky about feeding. With improper care, the berry becomes smaller and sour, but this does not detract from the advantages of a plant that brings a decent harvest equally in Central Russia, the Urals and Udmurtia.

But also one cannot leave aside the varietal flamingo pink grapes, similar in shape and taste to Pink peach - with oval, pinkish-red juicy berries and loose clusters up to 1 kg. A hybrid from Moldova requires pruning for 4–6 buds and does not need shelter for the winter (in the south and in central Russia).

Rose-fruited grapes Arched, like the hybrid form of the Original, are similar in fruit size. Arched ripens at the end of August, berries with light nutmeg contain sugars - 18%, acids - 4–5 g / l juicy, with floral notes. Original grapes - late variety, fruits are rich in sugars - 22%, moderate acidity - 6 g / l. The pulp is watery, but sweet, with a simple taste. These varietal hybrids are practically not susceptible to peas. Moderately sweet Arched is usually used for wine.

The dense grape clusters of the Original variety with conical berries and a bright purple color are stored in a cool room for more than 4–5 months.

Black-fruited grapes, in comparison with their light-colored "brothers", contain the most monosaccharides and vitamins, are excellent for conservation and winemaking, and seedless varieties are ideal for making raisins and jam. Bright, rich color of bunches, rich in anthocyanins, serves as a decoration of the garden area.

  • Surprisingly large, elongated fruit of grapes Odessa souvenir, received in Ukraine. The berries, blue with a black tint, are covered with a waxy coating and contain 4 seeds.

Sugar content - 16%, acidity - 6g / l. Flowers are bisexual. Shoots are cut into 8 eyes. Used in winemaking and homemade preparations.

Among the dark-fruited varieties, some also consider Black Delight (Dolores + Early Russian) the most reliable and productive, which ripens after 110 days.

In any case, the most delicious and harvestable grape hybrids are those that are grown with their own hands on a personal garden plot. If you work tirelessly, even an ordinary universal grape variety will give you berries of amazing taste and aroma that will appeal to any gourmet.
