Baco Noir is an old French Hybrid with lots of vigor.  It does very well on an arbor.  Baco needs long pruning to set a good weight of the small clusters of blue-black berries.  It makes a red wine of dark color, light body and high acid that blends well with varieties of lesser color.  Baco also makes excellent neutral juice and highly colored jelly.  It ripens about 3 weeks before Concord.
