||Vitis labrusca 'Concord Seedless'
||Grape, Concord Seedless
Vigorous, productive and heat tolerant, this seedless concord is a delicious and heart healthy fruit. Once established, this vine will produce a blue-black grape that is delicious for fresh eating, making juice, sweet wines, jellies or jams.
Grapes are wonderful for eating, juicing, and wine making. They also are also a beautiful ornamental plant with large, heart shaped leaves in spring and summer that become striking autumn foliage.
||Sweet and aromatic with flavor similar to concord grapes. In warm years, they may produce seeds.
||Fast growing vine, growing 12"-25" year. Will need trellis or support system.
||Spring. (Depends on temperature if early or late Spring.) Clusters of tiny white flowers emerge in spring.
||Full Sun. The more sun, the sweeter the fruit. Grapevines do best with full sun - about 7 or 8 hours per day. Less light leads to lower fruit production, poorer fruit quality, increased powdery mildew, and fruit rot.
||Well-draining soil. Newly planted grapes need immediate watering to minimize shock. Established grapevines are more drought tolerant but they do need regular watering.
|Planting and Care Tip:
Grapevines do best with full sun - about 7 or 8 hours per day. Less light leads to lower fruit production, poorer fruit quality, and increased powdery mildew.
Newly planted grapes need immediate watering to minimize shock. Throughout the first growing season, new vines should be watered weekly in the absence of rainfall. Water should be sufficient to wet the soil 6 to 10 inches beneath the surface, but deeper watering can cause root rot.
