Vitis labrusca x vinifera - Catawba Grape
Hardy and vigorous, the Catawba grape is the leading American grape for juice and wine: sweet white, red and rose. It also makes an excellent choice for fresh eating, jellies, and jams. The vine will produce bunches of coppery-red seedless grapes from late in the season: September to October. Hardy and vigorous, the Catawba grape is a deciduous vine with bold-textured, deep green foliage and medium-size clusters of round, dull purple-red grapes. Once established, water occasionally; more in extreme heat.
Seedless grape! Produces medium-sized clusters of large, sweet, juicy grapes. Heat-tolerant and ideally suited for southern gardens. Alachua has good disease resistance and a strong muscadine flavor, likely inherited from the Southland parent.
