Early Muscat Grapes
Early Muscat (Muscat Hamburg x Queen of the Vineyard). Bred by H. P. Olmo at the University of California at Davis. This large clustered white grape with oval berries was bred to be a table grape, but in the cool climate of the Pacific Northwest, it also makes a very nice muscat wine. While the vigor is good, the canes tend to be thin for a vinifera grape. Train it to cordons with spurs. Ripens about three weeks before Concord.
