Haronia

Haronia is a chance seedling which was found in Tiergarten in central Baden and which convinces because of its sweet aroma and the very long grapes. The large berries are resistant to bursting and therefore well suited for storage and transportation. With its regular yields, its early ripening and the long harvest period it enriches the range.

chance seedling
