Vitis vinifera 'Exalta'
This is a newly introduced French variety, offering good crops of seedless green/white grapes of a fine Muscat quality in late summer. Often grown under cover, but will grow and fruit outdoors in warm areas. A fast growing plant for training over walls, fences and structures. The leaves give a colourful autumn display before falling for the winter.
Best planted in any good garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Needs full sun for good periods to ripen the fruit.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
