    Best know for its edible grapes, which taste great when picked straight from the vine in mid October, this cultivar is also grown in Haute Savoie and Switzerland where it's fruits are used to produce wine. Our specialist growers have told us that its origin is uncertain, but it probably originated from the small Mâcon village that bears its name. It is an indoor grape, but will be quite happy grown outside against a sunny, south-facing wall in a sheltered spot. It is an easy, reliable and high yielding grape.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate plenty of well-rotted organic matter in to the planting hole. Prune in mid-winter, cutting back to fit the available space, and again in mid-summer if necessary. Shelter against cold, drying winds and provide plant protection, such as horticultural fleece, around young and establishing plants if prolonged or severe frost is forecast.
  • Dogs: Harmful if eaten
