Discover the grape variety: Iona

It is said to come from a seedling of diana - the latter is also a seedling of catawba - and propagated in 1860 by Dr. C.W. Grant, the introduction in the United States would date from 1863. Other ampelographers give it as coming directly from a seedling of catawba. The only certainty is that it is an interspecific cross with Vitis Labrusca as a parent. It should be noted that it is the parent of the diamond and the golden muscat. Iona can be found in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, etc. In France it is totally unknown. This variety can only be of interest to amateur gardeners, on the one hand to enlarge their collections and on the other hand, because it produces an excellent juice.
