Description
A versatile white grape which can be eaten fresh or used in wine and juice production. Grape 'Muscat of Alexandria' bears beautiful long bunches of white grapes in late September, with aromatic yellow-green skins and a superb, sweet flavour. This self fertile variety will produce the best results if grown under cover and may benefit from hand pollination - but the results are well worth the effort! Height of cordon trained vine: 1.8m (6'). Spread of cordon trained vine: 1.5m (5'). Untrained plants may reach up to 8m (26').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
When growing grape vines choose a sunny position in any well drained soil. A south facing position against a wall is ideal. Grape vines require sturdy support for their twining stems. Before planting, prepare a framework of wires stretched horizontally between two sturdy 1.8m (6’) posts or attached to a warm wall. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant grape vines against the wire supports, allowing a distance of 2m (6’) between plants. After planting, reduce the newly planted grape vine back to height of the lowest support wire, and cut back any side shoots to one bud, before tying the main stem in to the supporting wires.
More Info

Water grapes vines only during dry periods as excessive watering can reduce the quality of the fruit. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the vines in spring to retain moisture at their roots throughout summer. Prune grape vines in winter and train them in summer. Do not allow them to carry a crop of grapes until their third summer.


  • Year 1
  • Pruning grape vines in summer: Pinch back the side branches leaving 5 leaves, and reduce any shoots emanating from the side branches to 1 leaf.
  • Pruning grape vines in winter: Reduce the main stem by two thirds and cut back side branches to 1 bud.

  • Year 2
  • Repeat the same process in the second year, cutting side branches back to 5 leaves of the current season's growth in summer, and reducing the main stem and side shoots in winter.

  • Year 3
  • In the third summer, allow 2 bunches of grapes to develop per side branch. Prune away any lateral growth from 2 buds beyond the second bunch of fruit on each branch. The fruit can be harvested when ripe from early October.
