ripening_colony_grapes2.jpgGrapes are one of the oldest of cultivated fruits, and for a good reason.  They are easy to grow, yield abundantly and provide fruit, juice, wine, preserves, shade and beauty.  Plant 6 to 12 feet apart and support the long vines with a trellis or arbor. Our damp Spring weather often results in powdery mildew in grapes, so consider planting disease resistant varieties usch as Interlaken, Himrod, Glenora, Beauty, and Heavenly Blue.
