Thanks Dean
One of my first thoughts on tasting this grape was that - if I could offer it locally - it could actually get die-hard eaters of bland supermarket seedless grapes - to switch.

&gt;Hi Del,
&gt;I agree, Lorelei (ES 5-4-29) is a wonderful tasting grape. Elmer
&gt;Swenson crossed ES 2-4-13 x ES 2-5-5 to get this grape and many
&gt;other high quality grapes such as Summersweet, ES 5-4-16, and ES
&gt;5-3-89. Lorelei may be a challenge for it to survive zone 2 or 3,
&gt;as I have it as a zone 4 grape, but well worth the effort. Also,
&gt;from my records it does need a pollinator; I'm not sure if it is a
&gt;female grape or if the stamens are reflexed, like ES 5-3-89. As you
&gt;know, it is a white grape, with medium clusters and berries,
&gt;ripening in Early/Mid-Sept in Central Minnesota. When I have tasted
&gt;the fruit, the flavor is superior in the berries that are left to
&gt;ripen a little while longer, getting a slight bronze color tone to
&gt;them. I have been told that wine created from Lorelei is very
&gt;strange, and not suitable.
&gt;That's all the info I have.
&gt;Good luck!
