Grape - Pink Iona

Vine grows beautifully all over my pergola, fruits in huge quantities, but very pulpy texture, I made wine from it last year and the results are very refreshing with it's own distinct aroma, very little problem with Downy Mildue | David O'bryan - Mansfield, QLD 18-Oct-2008

Grape - Pink Iona (Cutting) 8/10

UPDATE 2014: Mum got someone who didn't know how to prune it to do so, and butchered it.. So doesn't reach the top trellis anymore, but have shaped it back to one main cane, and new growth is gowing fine

UPDATE 2012: My goodness.. So much fruit, really sweet, brilliant. One died, I suspect constant dog activity

Settling in quite well, leaves developing slowly. Were left in pots for a bit too long, but seem OK now after slow start
