We just moved to Missouri, in the Ozarks, & would like to grow the old Imperial variety of grapes. Does anyone know where we could get a cutting? Internet searching hasn't yielded any leads. Thank you!

Maybe they could be known by another name? What are their characteristics?

Regarding Imperial grapes, not aware of alternative names, but they were popular a couple decades ago, they are dark purple & have seeds. If you know of any like that please let me know. Thanks!

My horticulture list of grape varieties by species does not show an "Imperial" anywhere, could this be a name made up by a company like Burpee? they are notorious for making up their own names for cultivars.

Thanks for the tip; I did a search by characteristics & got a couple possibilities to try under different names.
