Prepare for your own special festival of the vine when you cultivate Seedless Concord Grapes. Once the vine has matured after a year's growth, and has been correctly pruned during February or March, you can expect to get 30 to 40 clusters, or 20 to 40 pounds, of juicy, sweet grapes per plant. These plump, luscious grapes, purple in color, are seedless, and begin to ripen in August for harvesting in September.
Concord grape plants grow inhardiness zones 4 to 9, but need to be protected from extreme weather in zone 4 and may produce seeds in high temperatures. Vitis labrusca 'Seedless Concord' should be planted about 8 to 15 feet apart and need the support of a wire fence or trellis as their spread can be up to 20 feet. Preferring slightly acidic soil that is well drained and moist, these deciduous vines are self-pollinating and need exposure to at least 8 hours of sunlight each day.
Because these grapes are a slipskin variety, they are easy to peel and process, making them ideal for fresh eating. Cultivate Concord seedless grapes to satisfy your family's sweet tooth.
