Semi-Wild Blue-Black Grapes: The Beta Grape

  • Extremely Cold Hardy
  • Near-Black Berries
  • Jams and Jellies
  • Disease Resistant

Get ready to walk on the wild side with the Beta Grape. This semi-wild grape with a near-black coloration is hardy, strong, and grows vigorously. Whether you live in the north where the growing season isn't long enough for most grapes or in the mid-south, the Beta Grape is an excellent and attractive choice for the garden.

The Beta Grape's claim-to-fame is its ability to thrive in some of the coldest zones. But its strength doesn't just lie in its winter hardiness--The Beta Grape also features superior disease resistance and vigor. The Beta Grape is also self-fertile, although that doesn't stop the bees from buzzing about, enjoying its sweet little white blooms.

What makes this grape so "wild"? It is a cultivar of the beloved Concord grape and the Carver (Vitis riparia)--a wild variety that grows along riverbanks.

This brilliant American grape ripens and is ready to harvest in August. Its near-black grapes grow in dense clusters that are easy to harvest. You can eat these sweet yet seeded little grapes fresh off the vine or make them into rare jams and jellies.

Your Beta Grape will send out tendrils that will climb and hold strong, reaching up to fifteen to twenty feet in length. Over time, the grapevine will become woody, giving your grapevine an old world charm.

Plant your Beta Grape where it can reach and climb, and spread out far and wide. Whether it's on top of your pergola, weaved through a trellis, or clinging to your arbor, the Beta Grape will produce well and look lovely.

If you have a south-facing slope for extra sun, your Beta Grape will thank you with ample grapes. Prune in winter and watch this grapevine thrive.

These semi-wild grapes make for a handsome display, even in chilly climates. These grapes also make tasty jellies and jams. Order your Beta Grape and prepare your trellis for a happy plant!
