Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
The hardiest and finest quality of the white grapes. Himrod’s flavor is excellent with sweet, juicy fruit that dries well for sweet raisins. First to ripen – a month ahead of Concord. Disease resistant. The vine is vigorous, bearing large loose clusters that ripen early and keep well. A delicious grape, one of the finest of the seedless varieties. The clusters are large but rather loose; berries are medium size, oval, golden amber and sweet. Grapes are not particular about soil preference and do especially well in clays and loams that have been improved with organic matter.
The vines are allowed to run as they will the first year and the posting or staking is done the second or third year when you will prune heavily, leaving only 2 or 3 buds on the strongest stem. As it grows you’ll keep only the most vigorous sprout to form the main stem. Shallow cultivation and mulching are beneficial.
