Catawba grape is the leading grape for American wine and juice. Catawba also makes an excellent choice for fresh eating as well as for use in jellies and jams. The medium-sized, coppery red, hybrid grapes are seedless with a full, sweet flavor. This hardy, vigorous vine is self-fertile, but it's recommended to plant more than one for the best crop (insects are still required to pollinate blossoms within each plant). The grapes ripen after Concord from late September-October. Plant vines 6-8 feet apart on a strong trellis, fence or arbor. Prefer a deep, acidic (pH 5.0-6.5), well-drained, sandy soil, but they tolerate a wide range of soil types (except alkaline and wet). Shipped as 1-year-old, #1 bareroot vines 6- 12 inches tall.

The benefits of bare-root trees
Our trees are delivered with natural bare roots which have been dipped in hydrating gel prior to shipment to keep the roots moist and healthy. As their abundant, fibrous roots aren't confined by a container, bare-root trees get off to a more vigorous start compared to containerized roots which typically need more time to adjust to transplanting. Bare-root trees typically surpass the size of larger containerized trees in only a few years.
