A new late white seedless table grape
It does not happen every day that a breeder finds a great new selection, but this one I will remember.
Back in 2004, when serving as Sun World’s grape breeder, I made this cross, and on August 25, 2006, I have visited the original seedling and identified it as a new selection.
At first sight I knew that these grapes are special.
When I brought clusters into the lab everybody agreed that this new selection does have a lot of potential. This new selection fits very well to be harvested after Thompson Seedless as a late green seedless grape.
I am very glad that Sun World has continued the development of this selection, and has decided to brand it as: AUTUMNCRISP®
This new selection became US PP20,491 P2 on November 17, 2009.
In late September 2016 I was very happy to find Autumn Crisp at the grocery stores in Israel.
It is grown and marketed by Tali Grapes.
Here are some links of articles about the new brand:
