Niagara Grape Vine
Ornamental Climber Presents a Tasty Treat
Sweet, juicy and delicious, the seedless Niagara Grape is the most popular commercially-grown grape in the United States. The Niagara Grape Vine makes a lovely addition to any garden area, and it will provide you with bushels of wholesome, yummy fruit for years on end.
As spring approaches, boldly textured emerald leaves materialize on bare woody vines, offering a vibrant punch of color. Generous full clusters of medium to large grapes begin to form, growing plump and golden-green in appearance as they mature.
Depending upon your region, Niagara Grapes are typically ready for harvest earlier in the season than other fruits, around mid to late August. For added interest, this deciduous vine's foliage turns bright greenish yellow at the onset of autumn.
Niagara Grape Vines may be grown against a fence, on a trellis or arbor or as a canopy for your patio, providing an irresistible vine-shaded retreat. These beauties will transform your outdoor living space into a romantic vacation destination.
Once established this vine can grow rather quickly, reaching mature heights of 6-12 feet or more. Annual pruning is necessary not only to ensure a bounty of fruit each season, but also to maintain the desired size and shape of your plant.
Hardy in growing zones 4-8, the Niagara Grape is a cold-loving vine that's also heat and drought tolerant. This vigorous trailing plant is pest and disease resistant, appreciates well-drained soil, and grows like a veritable champ in full sun.
Niagara Grapes are packed with flavor and health benefits. They are fabulous served fresh from the vine, pressed into juice, cooked into jelly or aged in a barrel to produce an enjoyable sweet wine.
With fuel and produce prices rising, save yourself that trip to the market and take pleasure in the cost-saving convenience of walking straight out to your home vineyard for fresh fruit anytime. You'll also enjoy the peace of mind in knowing your fruit is safe for consumption, grown without the harmful effects of pesticides and chemical sprays.
