Looks to be Sunder Khani.How many times have you taken its harvest in the past? How was the taste....same as its type sold in the market ?
Sir it's definitely not Sunder Khani. Can't tell about the taste at the moment as they aren't ripe yet. These actually are 5 year old Thai grapevines which were planted last year.

The grapes are great.two varieties.
These are two varieties.

Mashallah Khurram sb, what a view. BTW, few days I tried grape leaves in food. The leaves are pretty good in taste. Since I cannot eat your grapes, can I say "Angoor khat-tay hain"? :-)
Dr Sahib 'Angoor waqai khat-tay hain as they aren't ripe yet. Infact my daughter is more anxious for them to ripen and keeps on inquiring every weekend as to when they are actually going to ripen.

Sir,
In a hindsight no. It took 3 years for this vine to bloom. Shape of flower is unusual but i wouldn't term it spectacular.

First bloom with me was its last bloom, the picture shown was altogether different.

It's literally quite a sight (breathtaking) to see a wisteria vine loaded with countless fragrant flower clusters which especially in amethyst colour look more pleasing. The specimen shown below is a Chinese Wisteria vine (Wisteria sinensis) flowering in a private garden. Often people end up acquiring specimen of wisteria that fails to flowers for years e.g the wisteria sold by Lahore Nursery will not flower for years. Thus no point in acquiring wisteria from Lahore Nursery.

The key for a wisteria vine to flower profusely is to acquire the right specimen from the someone whose wisteria are guaranteed to flower within 2-4 years, planting it a sunny site and third pruning it. Plants that are not pruned tend to produce smaller and fewer flowers.

Notice the black wasps atleast 5-6 bigger than a bee drooling over the wisteria flowers in below images.

So do we make sure before buying that this wisteria will flower in few years? Seller will always claim that it is guaranteed to flower. Trunk size?
