Priesley appears to fit right across the province, but requires a special contract to grow. You will want to be close to a marketplace that accepts this variety. Priesley is among the latest maturing of our Hard Red varieties, spreading your risk for fusarium. Priesley was originally named after The King, Elvis Presley. It’s unique, and a fan favourite.
