Grape - Valiant
The Valiant Grape, Vitis 'Valiant', is a round blue grape averaging up to half inch in diameter with skin that can be easily removed from the flesh, making it excellent for juices and fresh eating.
This hardy, vigorous vine is very productive and an annual bearer. It ripens in late August and can survive temperatures down to -35 degrees with little to no winter injury.
It also produces fruit in a short season, and the fruit is tart and excellent for eating, making jelly and for delicious grape juice. It produces grapes with low acid levels and high sugars.
Versatile and fast growing, a grapevine can bear in just 2 years. 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.
Birds love grapes, so be sure to plant some to share.
