That's the difference in locales, obviously. PJ that I've tried tasted so
much like Canadice I'd have taken it to BE Canadice.
I've been growing Petite Jewel here in central MN,zone 4a since '92 with
only 2 crop failures due to cold - one of these was last year when many of
the native plants also had damage, and still it set about 1/4 crop. I find
Canadice to be bland and mushy by comparison, but maybe that is because PJ
is better adapted here and vice versa? Its a wonderful grape here and makes
great jam with the vestigial seeds, un-noticeable fresh, cooking up to give
it a unique nutty crunch. Its the textural experience of wheat bread with PJ
jam on white toast.
