  • My Violette De Solliès

    Safely under the hedge netting, I can sleep soundly at night knowing I don't have to pick this beauty 2-3 days before full maturity.

    Real nice Frank!

    I've been considering the VDS as an addition to my collection. Thoughts? Similar to?

      Scott, I've read that it similar or the same as Borjasotte Noir but have no way of comparing.

    I still have a few days before I get to taste this one, as well... like 380 days.

    Do you find it to be a slow grower? This one definitely took longer than most to recover from root-pruning. I hope this also means it can go longer between root-pruning.

      Bijan, on the contrary, this is one of my faster growers. It is a two year old plant. Too many factors are involved to reason why, I guess.

    This is a real good one! I put mines in ground last summer and we had torrential rains for a couple weeks and it drowned, but I was lucky enough to have separated an airlayer from it right before that happened. The back up was planted on a higher spot and is growing like crazy.
