Although grapes are adaptable, is is nonetheless important to select
varieties suitable to your growing area.
Grape vines require deep, slightly acidic, well-drained soil and full sun.
Soil that is too rich promotes vegetative growth instead of fruiting.
Vines bear fruit two to three years after planting two year old canes.
They should be spaced 6 feet apart.
For best results, prune according to the variety of grape planted. Regular
pruning, vine training, fruit thinning and feeding are necessary.
