Grape ‘Catawba’ 2 YR

Grape ‘Catawba’ is a popular red variety that is exceptionally vigorous.  After being picked, the fruit holds well and has a lovely, sweet taste that makes it ideal for serving fresh or using for juice and wine.

Grapes are not particular about soil preference and do exceptionally well in clays and loams improved with organic matter.  Not only do the plants produce fruit, but grapevines are also ornamental.  Train vines over an arbor or pergola to create a striking garden accent, and you will soon be harvesting your own fresh grapes.

Allow vines to run as they will the first year.  Post or stake the second or third year, and prune heavily, leaving only 2 or 3 buds on the strongest stem.  As the vine grows, keep only the most vigorous sprout to form the main stem.  Shallow cultivation and mulching are beneficial.

(This product is size 2 YR and includes 10 plants per unit.)

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the roots meet the stem) is about 1-2" below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Fertilize when planting. Best grown in deep, loamy, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, including average garden soils, but must have good drainage. Best sited in a location sheltered from winter winds (preferably a southern facing slope) and well removed from frost pockets. Self-pollinating. Grapes need a support system, training, regular spraying and regular pruning to maximize fruit production.
