Grape 10L (Catawba)
A purple-black grape variety used for wines, juices, jams and jellies. Medium bunch of grapes, easy to peel and very sweet to eat, with a nice “foxy” flavour. Grapes like hot, sunny areas that offer some protection from frost in winter. Frost cover in winter is advisable. If you take good care of your grapevine, it will grow and produce for many years to come – it might even outlive you. Keep this in mind and choose a site that will accommodate your vine permanently. Good drainage is very important for the health of your vine. Choose a well-draining site with a sandy loam soil. Grapes won’t thrive in clay soil.
Catawba typically ripens in January and are suitable for summer or winter rainfall.
