Catawba Grape

Makes a Fine Dessert Wine!

With its complex flavor of sweet mingled with notes of subtle spice, this slipskin grape makes a wonderful wine that's best enjoyed with dessert. It also makes a delightful sparkling vintage, as well as being tops for juice and jelly. Purple-red grapes are firm and round with a pleasant aroma that attracts plenty of pollinators to the trailing vines. Fruit appears in medium to large clusters and mature late in the season. Plant grows to 15-25 ft. in length and creates a nice ornamental screen when trained over an arbor or trellis. Zones 5-7.
