Try the University of Minnesota's recent release,'Petite Jewel'.  Very fruity, almost perfumed flavor, and seedless grapes don't get any hardier.

  Lon and I have been discussing what seedless grapes I should plant in my new paradise 75 miles west of Chicago near the Wisconsin border.  He tells me that some of my choices may have disease problems here.  But......don't take this personally Lon...he grows his grapes in a different climate than I do.  So, Zone 5a and 4b Midwest grape growers, I need your opinions.  How will the following seedless grapes do here:

  Interlaken
  Vanessa
  Glenora
  Mars

  My area hits -20F one out of five winters, and annual rainfall is about 30 inches.  Late summers are typically hot and very dry.  I'm an organic gardener and have beautiful loam soil.  I'll be planting the grapes facing south on a slope.  Air movement is brisk.
