Remarkable Italian heirloom that can be used for hanging into the winter, this allows the flavoursome cherry plum fruits to continue to ripen slowly, you can even be eating the fruits from the compact plant into December: hence it is also known as Winter Grape. Semi-determinate Price for 12 seeds
SOW: start about 6-8 weeks before the last frost is expected sowing in modules (cover or put on a windowsill).
GROW: transplant to pots and grow on before hardening off & planting in a sunny sheltered part of your garden, you can also grow this in a greenhouse. Grappoli D’Inverano is semi-determinate, it can reach 90-120cm (3-4ft) tall, will need staking, & stops growing when fruit sets on the top bud.
EAT: if the plants are pulled up in the autumn, just before the first frosts, and hung in a cool dark place then the rest of the fruits continue to ripen slowly, you can even be eating them into December: hence it is also known as Winter Grape.
