Neptune (PVP) (complex parentage) 1998, University of Arkansas. This variety was bred for resistance to cracking, and the firm, tough-skinned, white, seedless berries are indeed highly resistant to cracking. When well raised, the well filled clusters are almost pearly in appearance, being one of the handsomest white grapes I've seen. The flavor is neutral, much like vinifera, enough that Neptune could pass for it in grocery stores. Hardy to about -10oF. Canes have large diameter and vines have an open growth habit. Good vigor. Performs acceptably when trained to cordons and pruned to spurs. Ripens about two weeks before Concord.
