Vitis 'Edelweiss'

Plant Type: Hostas

The Edelweiss Grape is a plant that has medium-sized fruit that is sweet and pleasantly flavored. Its green-white color and high sugar content make it an excellent dessert or white wine grape. The vine has large fruit clusters with fine texture and flavor. It does have seeds, but is disease resistant. It should be protected at -30°F and ripens late August. Grapes are primarily grown for fruit production in home fruit gardens where they provide good ornamental value: bold summer foliage, showy fruit, some fall color and shaggy, twisted trunking and branching often best seen in winter. Grapes need full sunlight and high temperatures to ripen, so plant on southern slopes, the south side of windbreaks, or the south sides of buildings. Birds love grapes, so be sure to plant some to share.


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

This grape tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, but must have good drainage. Grapes need a good support system like fences, walls, trellises, arbors or other structures. The grape vines can be quite attractive year-round and can provide good cover, screening, or shade to areas around the home. Grapes need full sunlight and high temperatures to ripen, so plant on southern slopes, the south side of windbreaks, or the south sides of buildings.
