Turn your garden into a productive and pristine paradise. With the Kay Grape (Vitis x 'Kay'), you can enjoy a delicious glass of homemade white wine while taking in the view of your own personal vineyard. These lovely white grapes are known for putting up with some of the coldest winters and their easy-to-train nature. The Kay Grape is a cultivar of the MN 78 and Golden Muscat.

There's no need to wait long to harvest your Kay Grapes. They are one of the earliest varieties to ripen, often being ready to pick in mid-August. Not only can you fill basket upon baskets with these large grapes, but you will enjoy how culinarily versatile they are. They make a refreshing and bright white wine or you can enjoy yours in a Waldorf salad or sliced in chicken salad. Of course, you can feast on them freshly picked. Canning fanatics love to make tasty preserves with their grape bounty.

This strong and vigorous variety was developed in Wisconsin, where it learned to tolerant temperatures below -40-F! In fact, this grape came to be because of its ability to withstand cold and diseases like downy mildew. Its developer, Elmer Swenson discovered it after becoming sick and not spraying his vines for a while. After his recovery, he found this vine shining forth as a specimen of health.

Kay Grapes are sweet and a true treat. Their flavor is reminiscent of the Concord, but with more tender skin.

Not only do people love them, but pollinators do, too. When your Kay Grapevine blooms in summer with clusters of petite whitish-green flowers, your arbor will come alive with bees, butterflies, and other beneficial pollinators.

Kay Grapes train easily, making them an ideal choice for trellises, pergolas, and arbors. You can trim yours in winter and celebrate its new growth come spring.

Say "O-Kay" to the Kay Grape. If you're looking for a winning grape, look no further. This great grape is ready to make your day. Order yours!
