This vigorous-growing grape vine yields full clusters of mouthwateringly sweet, citrus-flavored fruits weighing up to a pound. The grapes are a gorgeous, white-tinted green and medium in size, perfect for juices, wines, jellies, and eating straight off of the vine! The wine produced from these grapes is semi-dry and varies from sweet to semi-sweet, with flavor profiles of peach, pineapple, and citrus. The scent profile is said to be foxy and reminiscent of Vitis labrusca. Harvest these delightful fruits all through August, taking care to harvest them before they get too ripe; if they do, the flavor may be too bold for some. Bred from Minnesota #78 and Ontario grapes, this hybrid climber is also incredibly cold hardy up to -15°F, and disease resistant; perfect for areas with a shorter growing season or colder weather!
Edelweiss Grape Vine Care
Hardy in zones 3 through 8, plant this climbing grapevine in the spring in an area that receives full sun. Plant in well-draining sandy loam to sandy clay soil with a pH of 7 to 8. Space your plantings 5 feet apart. Train on a trellis of another climbing apparatus; many gardeners choose to use a Geneva Double Curtain trellis system for Edelweiss Grapevine. Training your vine in the early years is essential for fruit development. Prune in early spring when the vine is still dormant. If properly cared for, this grapevine can live up to 50 years!
Growing Edelweiss Grape Vine
This grapevine has a mature height of 8 to 10 feet and a mature spread of 3 to 6 feet. Harvest once the individual grapes have reached a weight of about 3.3 grams. Mulching is encouraged for this variety, taking care to pull mulch away from the vine.
If growing in a container, avoid using a pot that is too dark in color, which could cause the roots to become overheated. Instead, choose a container at least 15 gallons in size, in a lighter shade, such as wood.
Watering Edelweiss Grape Vine
Water frequently during the first few weeks to encourage proper root development, about 2 or 3 times per week. After this period, soak the ground up to 8 inches when the soil is dry.
Feeding Edelweiss Grape Vine
Feed annually with an organic fertilizer in the spring. In the first year, apply a fertilizer with plenty of phosphorous to encourage root growth and development. In the following years, use an all-purpose organic fertilizer. Test your soil and check nitrogen levels; if there is too much nitrogen, this grapevine may prioritize leafy growth over fruit development. It is also very sensitive to sulfur, so check that too!
