Grape ‘Cayuga’ White

Cayuga White is one of the most productive and disease-resistant varieties grown in New York- Cornell University’s first variety released specifically for winemaking. This versatile grape can be made into a semi-dry or sweet wine emphasizing the fruit aromas, or using oak aging, into a dry, less fruity wine. Excellent cultural characteristics and high wine quality promise an important future for this variety. Great cocktail wine with hors d’oeuvres, pork, ham, chicken in cream sauce, and some asian cuisine.

General Information +

General Characteristics: 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.

Use: Wine

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 1-2" deep, make sure 4-5" of the top show above the 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.
