POMMER, Celso Valdevino et al. INTRODUCTION OF THE TABLE GRAPE CULTIVARS "FANTASY SEEDLESS" AND "CRIMSON SEEDLESS" INTO BRAZIL. Sci. agric. [online]. 1999, vol.56, n.1, pp.247-252. ISSN 1678-992X.

"Fantasy Seedless" and "Crimson Seedless" are two vinifera table grape cultivars released in 1989 by the USDA, Fresno, CA, USA, and introduced in Brazil by the authors. At the end of winter of 1991, cuttings of both cultivars were grafted on three different rootstocks at Campinas, SP, Brazil. Cuttings were also distributed for selected growers of various regions in the São Paulo State. Results of preliminary observations are presented here. "Fantasy Seedless" is an early to mid-season black seedless grape with cluster medium in size (350-550g), with a length of 13-20cm and a medium to loose compactness. The berries are naturally large, averaging 4-9g, 17-22mm in diameter, 20-30mm long, and are mostly oval. "Crimson Seedless" is a mid season red seedless grape with cluster medium in size (460-620g) and length (18-30cm), and are slightly compact. The berries are naturally large, averaging 3.5-8.0g, 16-21mm in diameter, 18-30mm long, and are cylindrical to oval in shape. The duration of the cycle (pruning to harvest) in Campinas, for both cultivars was about the same whether grafted on Kober 5BB, 106-8 Mgt or IAC 766, but vigor evaluated through trunk diameter and pruned weight, was higher for Crimson Seedless grafted on Kober 5BB. The performance of both cultivars in the São Paulo State showed that they can be commercially recommended. Both varieties were renamed in Portuguese as follows: Fantasia for "Fantasy Seedless" and Ruiva for "Crimson Seedless".
