Known for large fruit size, exceptional fruit quality and excellent sweet flavor, Diamante is ideal for eating fresh or using in preserves or pies, and is a popular choice for chocolate covered strawberries. This high yielding, day-neutral selection provides a bountiful harvest from spring through frost. Semi-evergreen.
Makes wonderfully sophisticated reds. Wine writers have been waxing poetic about this variety for over a decade now because of its high sugar content and moderate acidity. This combination is capable of producing highly complex wines with a deep ruby color, exquisite tannins and flavors of blackberry, cherry, black pepper and allspice. The grapes are blue-black and gorgeous on the vines, which have a semi-upright habit and medium vigor. Developed by the University of Minnesota and introduced in 2006. Ripens early-to-mid September. Self-pollinating.
Berried Treasure Red
To keep your Berried Treaures looking its best, you may need to do some light cleaning of spent flowers. Keeping the soil evenly moist and using a regular fertilization program will produce the most prolific berry crop.
Fall Gold Raspberry
A rare, exciting self-fertile gold raspberry with the same deliciously sweet taste of red varieties, and the ability to produce two crops each season. After a late summer to fall harvest, a second crop arrives the following spring on the same canes. Excellent fresh or for preserves and pies. The warm yellow berries brighten the garden. Deciduous.
Hands down, the best Raspberry I have ever had, to describe the taste I would say a cross of Maple syrup and plain raspberry, simply a wonderful taste.
Introduced in 2003 by the University of Minnesota, this cultivar produces a quality white wine. A perfect grape to snack on!
Wines produced from this cultivar can make lively, refreshing table, dessert, and ice wines with aromas of pineapple, apricot, peach, and citrus
