|Grape - Native - Out Of Stock!|
|Hardiest of the grapes, produces small black fruits that can be eaten or left for the birds.|
|Botanical (latin) name:||Vitis riparia|
As surprising as it may seem, the native grape grows wild all the way to the Arctic Circle. The grapes are smaller than the other hardy varieties, but taste pretty good when picked slightly overripe.
The native grape is used primarily as a decorative vine on the south side of buildings. Though not as colourful in the fall as the Virgina Creeper or English Ivy, the small grapes really attract the birds.
Grow the native grape on the trellised south side of a building in sandy loam that is slightly acidic (pH 6)
