Description / Vitis Catawba Red Grape

Vitis Catawba Red Grape is a stunning deciduous grapevine that offers both aesthetic appeal and fruitful harvests. A favorite of gardeners, this gorgeous vine blooms with delicate yellowish-green flowers in late spring and produces a bounty of round, purple-red grapes in early autumn. The grapes are not only beautiful but also firm, juicy, and incredibly sweet, perfect for fresh consumption, juicing, or even homemade wine.

Vitis Catawba Red Grape is a hardy, robust vine that thrives with little attention and care. During its first year, let the vine grow freely, but as it matures, it will benefit from heavy pruning and staking. Maintain the strongest stem, leaving only 2 or 3 buds, and prune regularly for optimal fruit production. This versatile grapevine can be trained to grow on a wire trellis, espaliered against a wall, or draped over an arbor, pergola, or fence to create a captivating garden feature.

This grapevines flourishes in a sun-soaked spot with deep, well-drained soil. However, it's adaptable to a variety of soil types, and grows particularly well in clay and loam enriched with organic matter, provided there is good drainage. A location sheltered from winter winds, shallow cultivation, and mulching will enhance its growth. The vine is self-fertile, meaning it doesn't need pollen from other varieties to bear fruit.

Grapes ship as 1-year-old plants.
