Grapes – Concord (Vitis labrusca)
The Concord grape is a cultivar used as table grapes, wine grapes and juice grapes. It is the best-known commercial variety. This vigorous, trailing vine is grown for its small clusters of large reddish-purple fruit which ripens in mid to late fall, the sweet and juicy fruit is excellent for eating fresh or in jellies. It is also a good choice for hedges, screening, arbors, winding along fences, general garden use, and edible landscaping. This is a fast growing vine requires regular pruning and sun. It does require maintenance, and will attract birds and other wildlife (like bears!) to your yard if left to spread.
