Vigorous, twining deciduous vine. Grown for its large clusters of small to medium seedless, dark red sweet and crisp berries.
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.
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.
