It had a mean date of bud break in trials of 24 Apr. at Suwon, Republic of Korea while full bloom and fruit maturity occurred on 5 June and 5 Oct., respectively. It has excellent flavor with abundant aroma and very good firmness. Mean berry weight was 5.7 g, and mean total soluble solids concentration was 19.6 °Brix. 'Hongaram' has good cold hardiness. It compares favorably with the cultivar 'Tano Red' in taste, aroma, and resistance to downy mildew. 'Hongaram' is the first table grape cultivar with muscat aroma introduced in Korea.
