Ruby Seedless Grape
Vitis vinifera 'Ruby Seedless'
|Description||Vigorous deciduous vine with bold-textured, deep green foliage. Grown for its large clusters of small to medium seedless, red to reddish-black berries. Sweet dessert fruit. Ripens late mid-season. This vigorous, twining vine works well as a screen for arbors or trailing along fences.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Inconspicuous; prized for fruit and foliage.|
|Mature Size||Fast growing vine; grows 20 to 25 ft. each year.|
|Landscape Use||Espalier, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||On a trellis or arbor, add this grapevine to the hot, sunny garden and enjoy the early-season harvest, as well as the attractive foliage and winter silhouette of trunk and branch. Also works well as a fruit-bearing fence to enclose a kitchen garden.|
|Companion Plants||Blackberry (Rubus); Lavender (Lavandula); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Fig (Ficus); Oregano (Origanum); Geranium (Pelargonium)|
|Care||Easily grown in deep, loamy, humus-rich, well-drained soil, but quite adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with an organic fertilizer from spring to midsummer. Provide sturdy trellis or arbor support. Prune annually to control size.|
|Lore||The grape was a primarily agricultural crop of the Romans who refined the art of wine making by collecting cultivars from its Empire to develop improved vineyard varieties.|
