LoreIt is believed that the European grape originated in Asia Minor, probably around Turkey, from a wild plant that produced small fruit. Over millennia it was selected for ever larger fruit to eventually produce the array of wine grapes cultivated today.

Bloom TimeInconspicuous; prized for fruit and foliage.
Design IdeasGrapes can grow wherever there is direct sun and sufficient air circulation. They're traditionally trained overhead onto shade arbors over outdoor living spaces. Also popular for training along fence lines and up over arbor gateways. May be cultivated on standard wire trellis used in commercial vineyards.

Watering NeedsOnce established, water occasionally; more in extreme heat.

Easily grown in deep, loamy, humus-rich, well-drained soil, but quite adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize every 6 to 8 weeks until midsummer. Provide trellis or arbor support. Prune annually in winter to control size.
