Black Muscat Hamburg grape

A well known table grape, plump black fruit. This grape dates back to the 1850's, often called Muscat de Hamburg, Black Muscat among others. Prefers a warm position for best ripening. Grapes prefer full sun, a well drained sandy soil and dont need a lot of water once established. A trellis system is essential - a simple 1.5-1.8m high by 3m should do per plant. They require heavy pruning in late autumn and a light summer prune will reduce the risk of mildew.
