Phoenix was bred in Germany with the help of the European Union. Together they were able to classify Phoenix as a white Vitis Vinifera German Hybrid. It was selected for its disease resistance and fruit quality. This variety produces good sized berries in densely packed clusters. When ripe the grapes have a light Muscat aroma and an excellent flavor, making them ideal for eating fresh from the vine or for wine-making.
Phoenix is able to tolerate temperatures down to -7 degrees Fahrenheit. Flowers late May to early June. Ripens mid-season.
