Description / Vitis Catawba Red Grape

Vitis Catawba Red Grape is a woody deciduous grapevine that's ornamental as well as productive, prized for fruit and foliage. A popular red variety, Catawba Red blooms in tiny yellowish-green flowers in mid to late spring followed by medium-sized clusters of round purple-red fruit, harvestable in early fall. The fruit holds well after picking and is firm and juicy with a very sweet flavor, ideal for fresh eating, juicing, and winemaking.

Vitis Catawba Red Grape is a hardy, exceptionally vigorous vine. The first year, the grapevine should be allowed to run freely, but by the second or third year, it should be posted or staked after a heavy pruning, leaving only 2 or 3 buds on the strongest stem. As it grows, keep only the most vigorous sprout to form the main stem. Regular spraying and pruning will maximize fruit production. Grapevines can be cultivated on a wire trellis, espaliered on a courtyard wall, or trained on an arbor, pergola, or fence for a striking garden feature.

Grapevines grow best in sunny locations with deep, medium moist, well-draining soil but are adaptable to a wide range of soils and do especially well in clays and loams that have been improved with organic matter, if they have good drainage. Site location should be sheltered from winter winds. Shallow cultivation and mulch are beneficial. The vine is self-fertile and will bear fruit without any pollen from other varieties.

Grapes ship as 1-year-old plants.
