Grape ‘Himrod’ Seedless White

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!

The hardiest and finest quality of the white grapes. Himrod’s flavor is excellent with sweet, juicy fruit that dries well for sweet raisins. First to ripen – a month ahead of Concord. Disease resistant. The vine is vigorous, bearing large loose clusters that ripen early and keep well. A delicious grape, one of the finest of the seedless varieties. The clusters are large but rather loose; berries are medium size, oval, golden amber and sweet. Grapes are not particular about soil preference and do especially well in clays and loams that have been improved with organic matter.

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.

General Information +

Botanical: Vitis 'Himrod'

General Characteristics: Himrod' is a seedless hybrid 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 (maturing golden yellow) which ripen in early season (mid August in USDA Zone 5). Considered to be a good for fresh eating and for drying as raisins. 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/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: Grape plants require a fair amount of maintenance and pruning. If given the proper amount of care, these wonderful fruits will provide you and your family with years of pleasure.

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.
