Our Grape Offerings:
Seedless Table Grapes
All of our seedless grapes are hardy, disease resistant and self-pollinating. They are excellent for juice, jelly or as a distinctively flavored table grape.
Concord Seedless is a sport of Concord, which comprises the majority of all grape plantings due to its reliability under widely varying conditions. This mid-season variety has a long ripening time. The clusters of blue berries have excellent flavor.
Himrod is an early season variety. It produces large, loosely filled bunches of medium-sized, white grapes with a honey-like flavor and melting, juicy texture. The grapes may be dried as raisins.
Mars is a vigorous grape producing luscious deep blue fruit. Clusters are medium-sized and well filled. One of the last to bud out in spring, thus avoiding damage from late frost.
Reliance is the most cold hardy of the seedless varieties. This early season grape produces large clusters of medium-sized red berries with tender skins and a sweet flavor. Ripens two weeks before Concord Seedless.
Vanessa is a medium-sized, red dessert grape with a mild, fruity flavor and a firm to crisp texture. The vine is moderately vigorous and one of the hardiest.
Venus is a vigorous, productive vine that bears early ripening, medium clusters of large blue-black grapes with a great flavor.
Muscadines are southern native grape varieties. Unlike our other table grapes they do have seeds, but the taste is somewhat legendary among aficionados and they are easy to grow without the use of chemicals. We offer three varieties:
Carlos yields huge, delicious, golden-bronze grapes often more than an inch in diameter. This grape is a favorite for juice and jelly.
Cowart is vigorous, productive and disease resistant. The large black fruit is used in jams and jellies.
Magnolia is mid-season variety that yields small, flavorful, bronze berries that are excellent for wine, juice or fresh eating.
Triumph is an early to mid-season, self-fertile grape that produces large, thin-skinned, greenish-bronze grapes with high sugar content.
Cayuga White was developed from crosses of the hybrids Schuyler and Seyval Blanc done at Cornell University's New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. Cayuga is a versatile, fast-growing grape that can produce fruit in just two years. It can be made into a semisweet wine with a fruity aroma, or oak aged into a dry, less fruity wine. This is a productive and disease-resistant variety.
Chambourcin is a late-ripening grape that requires a long growing season. It produces large moderately loose bunches of medium-sized blue berries. Little is known about the exact parentage of Chambourcin. It was a hybrid developed by Joannes Seibel in the Loire Valley of France, based on a number of undetermined Native American species and Seibel hybrids. It was released in the early 1960s.
Chardonay is thought by many people to be the premier white wine grape. It produces the great white Burgundy wines including Chablis, Poully-Fuiss, and Montrachet. One of the hardiest wine grapes.
Merlot can be traced back to France in the first century. It produces large yields of medium-sized, deep black fruit.
Pinot Noir is one of the oldest grape varieties used in wine making. Ancient Romans made wine with it as early as the first century A.D. Its small, dark blue grapes produce a dry, delicate, pinkish-red wine.
