Type and Color - Seedless table grape; reddish blue to blue when fully mature.

Berry Flavor - Mild muscat; rated highly and exceeded only by Reliance in flavor ratings; 20.6 percent soluble solids.

Berry Size - Large, 4 to 5 grams.

Berry Texture - Non-slipskin; semi-crisp; skin thickness less than many eastern table grapes.

Cluster Size - Medium-large, 200 to 250 grams average; similar weight to Venus.

Yield - High, 8 to 13 tons/acre in research trials.

Maturity Date - Early, approximately July 24 at Clarksville, Arkansas, five days after Venus.
