Are you dreaming of starting a wine vineyard? With Cayuga White Grape Vine, you can walk out into the backyard and grab a fresh bunch of luscious, sweet grapes to eat straight off the vine. Hybridized by Cornell University from Schuyler and Seyve-Villard grapes, this grape is used to make white wines with Riesling-like fruity notes of apple and citrus. Otherwise known as Vitis vinifera ‘Cayuga White’, this vine produces bounteous baskets of plump fruit every September during harvest time. Cold hardy in zones 4 to 8, Cayuga White Grape Vine, a French-American hybrid, is easy to grow, disease resistant, attracts butterflies and songbirds, and supports bees.

Cayuga White Grape Vine Care  

Plant Cayuga White in full sun during late winter / early spring after the last freeze date has passed. It prefers moist, loamy, well-draining soil that is moderate to slightly acidic. Amend poorly draining soil with compost. Space vines 10-12 feet apart. 

Prune during late winter or early spring to shape and control the size while the vine is dormant. While this grapevine is relatively disease resistant, pruning improves aeration, thus diminishing the risk of fungal diseases commonly affecting grapes, including black rot.

Growing Cayuga White Grape Vine  

When provided ample space and full sun, this woody vine thrives outdoors and indoors. Staking, training, and fertilizing are essential to its cultivation. Reaching heights and spreads of 10 to 12 feet, this deciduous grape matures in three years. A heavy producer, it yields bunches of grapes ready for snacking or wine-making. 

Grape vines thrive in containers. Choose a vessel 1 to 2 feet deep and wide. Ensure it has several drainage holes; grape vines do better in well-draining soil. Avoid dark-colored containers that absorb sunlight and plastic pots that trap heat; both types increase soil temperature. Add stakes for support. Apply a 1-inch ring of compost to conserve moisture and enrich the soil. Water when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch.

Watering Cayuga White Grape Vine  

Newly planted grapes require regular watering, totaling about an inch per week. Once established, however, this vine typically requires watering only during drought. 

Feeding Cayuga White Grape Vine  

Apply a slow-release, balanced fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10, during the spring. Other fertilizer options include a topdressing of organic compost and manure.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
