Out of Season Cayuga Grape

Cayuga Grape

The Most ProductiveWhite Grape Available

Sweet, tasty grapes ideal for fresh eating; also good for wine, producing a fruity flavor similar to Riesling. Ripening in September, Cayuga is notable for its hardiness and bunch rot resistance. Zones 4-8.

  • Soil Requirements: Moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate to fast growth rate.
  • Pruning: During late February or March, proper pruning will help maintain a grapevine's potential of producing a good quality fruit crop, develop good vine structure, increase sunlight exposure into the canopy, promote the development of next year's fruiting wood, and potentially reduce disease and insect pressure.
  • Size: 1/16 - 1/8 inch flowers.
  • Comments: The most productive white grape you can grow. Sweet skin in warmer climates. A recommended hybrid cross, developed in 1947 and released in 1972 by the Geneva (NY) Research Station, between the Schuyler and Seyval Blanc cultivars. Usually ripens around late September and is used to make a fruity white wine of mild intensity somewhat similar to Riesling. Widely grown in the Finger Lakes region of New York State and other hard-frost areas to -5 deg. F. (ca -20 C.) susceptible regions of North America. Also recommended for Arkansas. Noted for hardiness and bunch rot disease resistance, the grapes should be picked at low sugars to avoid over-ripe, sometimes labrusca-like, flavors. Young shoots reportedly fragile in strong winds. Restricted States: AE, AK, CA, GU, HI, ID, OR, PR, WA.
