Grape 'Niagara' white
Item GR105

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!
'Niagara' is an excellent white variety producing generous clusters of flavorful fruit, plus they are known for their pleasant aroma. The 'Niagara' Grape has a very sweet taste that makes it ideal for table use, jams/jellies, juice, wines, and champagnes. 'Niagara' ripens mid season and it ranks just below Concord in cold hardiness and ripens somewhat earlier. Plants are vigorous, hardy, and productive. Grapes are not particular about soil preference and do especially well in clays and loams that have been improved with organic matter. Not only do the plants produce fruit, grapevines are also ornamental. Train vines over an arbor or pergola to create a striking garden accent and you'll soon be harvesting your own fresh grapes.

The vines are allowed to run as they will the first year and the posting or staking is done the second or third year when you will prune heavily, leaving only 2 or 3 buds on the strongest stem. As it grows you'll keep only the most vigorous sprout to form the main stem. Shallow cultivation and mulching are beneficial.

Pests: Grapes are high maintenance plants that require regular chemical spraying and pruning. Grapes are susceptible to a large number of diseases, particularly in humid summer climates, including anthracnose, black rot, downy and powdery mildew, crown gall and botrytis bunch rot. Insect pests include phylloxera, grape berry moth, Japanese beetle, leaf hopper, leaf roller, mealy bugs and flea beetles.

Notes: 'Niagara' is an American grape variety. It is a woody, deciduous, tendril climbing vine which typically will grow 15-20' long unless pruned shorter. Panicles of fragrant, greenish flowers in spring are followed by clusters of white seedless grapes which ripen in midseason (early September in USDA Zone 5). Considered to be a good grape for wine, fresh eating, juice or jellies. Large, shallowly-three-lobed, green foliage. Flowers are attractive to bees. Ripe fruit is attractive to some hornets and wasps.

Grapes are primarily grown for fruit production in home fruit gardens where ornamental interest is not a concern. However, grapes do in fact have good ornamental value: bold summer foliage, some fall color, showy fruit and shaggy, twisted trunking and branching often best seen in winter. When grown on fences, walls, trellises, arbors or other structures, grapes can be quite attractive year-round and can provide good cover, screening, or shade to areas around the home.

Planting instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the roots meet the stem) is about 1-2" below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Fertilize when planting.

Best grown in deep, loamy, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, including average garden soils, but must have good drainage. Best sited in a location sheltered from winter winds (preferably a southern facing slope) and well removed from frost pockets. Self-pollinating. Grapes need a support system, training, regular spraying and regular pruning to maximize fruit production.
