The ‘Suffolk’ Red seedless grape is one of the tastiest seedless grape varieties. Suffolk Seedless grapes are an American red dessert variety with very tender skin and taste delicious eaten fresh. From the same breeding program as ‘Lakemont’, ‘Suffolk Red’ produces open bunches of bright red fruits. The soft skins of this variety make the fruits almost melt in the mouth. With a gorgeously sweet and fruity flavor, the fruits are literally bursting with juice – making them not only perfect for eating but also for winemaking and juicing. As a side benefit, they also produce a good Autumn show as the foliage colors to rich oranges and reds.
‘Suffolk’ grapes are round, firm and meaty with a pure non-foxy flavor. Medium sized on long, loose clusters, their color varies from bright red to grayish pink. Suffolk grape vines need direct sun to develop maximum red color. This grape is moderately winter hardy and is a good choice for a garden or commercial production. Self-pollinating. Early to mid-season harvest: mid-September, about 14 to 20 days before Concord.
