‘Suffolk Red’ is a self-pollinating, seedless American grape hybrid. It is a woody, deciduous, climbing vine, typically growing 15 to 20′ long unless pruned. Large, shallow-cut, three-lobed, green foliage is tropical-like. Panicles of fragrant, greenish flowers appear latter Spring – early Summer, followed by huge clusters of bright red, spicy-sweet flavored seedless grapes. Fruits appear late season. Considered one of the best dessert grapes. Best fruiting in full sun, in well drained soil, but tolerates light shade & heavier soils. Good drainage is a must, and protection from harsh winds.
Relatively wildlife tolerant after establishment.
Very pollinator & wildlife friendly.
