Grape - Himrod
The Himrod Grape, Vitis 'Himrod', is a yellow-gold fruited variety with long loose clusters of medium-sized berries that are great for fresh eating. One of the hardiest white seedless grapes, this high quality variety ripens in late August and makes an excellent vine for the home garden.
It is a seedless hybrid American grape variety and has a woody, deciduous, tendril climbing vine which typically will grow 15-20' long unless pruned shorter.
Panicles of fragrant, greenish flowers in spring are followed by clusters of white seedless grapes (maturing golden yellow) which ripen in early season. Considered to be good for fresh eating and for drying as raisins.
The foliage is large, shallowly-three-lobed, and green. This grape tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, but must have good drainage.
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 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. Its flowers are attractive to bees, and birds love grapes, so be sure to plant some to share.
