For the Moscow region, I think this is the best grape variety, even in bad years it ripens until mid-August, the vine always ripens. The children’s favorite.

Zilga

This early ripening universal grape is good for the Moscow region and for the northern regions. Bushes vigorous. Shoots ripen well. Good rootstock compatibility, fast rooting.

The best mid-ripening grape varieties

Talisman (Kesha-1)

Mid-season table grapes. With flowers of a functionally female type, it shows good pollination (in the presence of pollinating varieties) and a low degree of pea, but upon additional pollination it forms an even, larger bunch. Differs in active growth, the shoots are thick and noticeably ahead of other varieties in growth. Pasynkov gives a lot. The cluster is conical, of medium density, weighing from 550 — 800 to 1100 — 1900 g. The berries are round, 3 — 4 cm in diameter, amber with a white wax coating, weighing 12 — 16 g and above. The pulp is very sweet, with a nutmeg aroma and flavor. Shows high resistance to disease and frost. Due to late maturation, it is recommended for cultivation in the southern regions. In the Volgograd region, it ripens in the third decade of August. In the Moscow region, in open ground, this grape has poor ripening and lack of varietal taste of berries. It performs well when grown in a greenhouse or with temporary shelters for a «race».

Main advantages:

  • disease resistance
  • high winter hardiness
Minuses:
  • sensitive to shaping
  • requires additional pollination
