Grape vines are quite adaptable, but prefer rocky limestone soil. A grape vine needs to be supported by either a fence or a trellis. The branches are put down under mulch for the winter. The cultivars we offer are very hardy, more than the usual grape vines. Expect production to start in 3 to 4 years. Growing a table grape vine in the North of Canada was not possible until recently, when researches have been able to find good varieties. The fruit of these cultivars are a little small compared to what you can find in a grocery store, but they are very sweet. As with many other fruits and vegetables, the grapes develop more sugar when they are left on the vine until first frost. Most grape vines are self fertile, but benefit from cross-pollination with another variety. Space them 1.8 metres apart, between the plants and between the rows.
