Saturn (PVP). (Complex parentage). Bred at the University of Arkansas. The dark red, firm, meaty egg-shaped berries of Saturn are very much like vinifera in flavor and character. And while the clusters can be quite large, the size of them can vary in different climates. In cool seasons, there may be a fairly large number of small "shot" berries in the cluster and the clusters themselves may be smaller. At it's best in hot growing seasons. Prune Saturn to canes to get the best production from the vine. On fertile soils it can have canes that are among the thickest of any American grape. Ripens about two weeks before Concord.
