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.
