Comments

'Sweet Jenny' is a large sized high quality bronze grape from Ison's Nursery. Flavor and berry quality were very good. However, yields seemed to bounce back and forth from about 70% of a crop to only 30% of a crop. Because of these inconsistent yields, I do not recommend 'Sweet Jenny' for commercial vineyards.
