Isabella is a table and technical, as well as an ornamental grape variety of late ripening.Its discoverer is considered to be the American breeder William Prince, who discovered a vine of this variety in the garden of the Gibbs family. He named dark large berries in honor of the mistress of the house – Isabella Gibbs. Later it turned out that this variety arose as a result of a natural crossing of two other varieties – Labrusca and Vinifera.Berries of Isabella are medium, round or oval, black, with a bluish tint, covered with an abundant wax coating. The skin of these berries is rough, and under it lies a very delicate jelly-like pulp with a strongly pronounced strawberry aroma, which most fully manifests its virtues in juices and wines.
