Planting grapes from seed
[Return to Topics]

tugboat tim in PA.    Posted 02-18-2005 at 07:05:33       [Reply]  [No Email]
I had some of the largest grapes I have ever seen a while back so I decided to plant the seeds. I now have a half dozen of little grape plants by the window in the house. I was wonderin when I could safely take them outside and make my first grape arbor. How long will it take 2 or 3 years till I see any grapes if any at all. Thanx in advance tugboat tim

down here in se texas we have wild muscadine grapes. they grow like crazy with no fertlizer or irrigation. they are all over the woods and fences. they make excellant jelly, juice, wine and grape sauce. they outperform any other kind of grape hands down. however, i don't know if they would survive winter in PA. check with your local agriculture extension office.

Y....run this y set along top wire
Y run this set along bottom wire

Y run this set into the dirt..prune from main vine when roots are established...hope this clears things up....just picture 3 y's with extended bottoms on top of each other and ya have the perfect grape vine...dale anne

Howdy tugboat.....Plant after ya get the true leaves[3rd set on stem] and after the last frost...some say the 2nd set of leaves is the true set however I have found that the 3rd set is better fer judgung the planting time.....You should get grapes in about 3-4 years...I have seen some wild grapes fruit at 2 years...not sure which you have......We here have wild muskidine and the stuff grows so rapid and wild it has pulled down some of our trees...so take care not to plant them near trees or electric/phone poles......you can also get more grape vines without planting seeds...near the end of spring cut away all but 3 vines on each side of the main stalk....so that you have 3 sets of y branches to a stalk...now take the 3rd vine on either side of the stalk and bring them to the ground and place dirt on top of them.....after a few weeks these will have started to root...let the roots establish and then cut the vine from the main stalk and transplant the new vines.....good luck...Dale Anne
