The tasty, sweet fruit of the Frontenac™ Grape Vine produces rich, red wines. White flowers give way to small, blue-black grapes with a firm texture. The grapes have a bold flavor with hints of cherry and black currant. Grapes grow in medium to large clusters and are ready to harvest from late August until mid-September.
This cold-hardy grape vine is known for its vigor, and can grow substantially each year. Frontenac™ Grape Vines are also self-pollinating, so other plants are not necessary, and you can get a harvest from one plant.
Frontenac™ Grape Vine Care
Plant Frontenac™ Grape Vines in the spring when the ground can be worked. A spot that receives full sun is best. The soil should be moist, loamy, and well-drained with a pH of 5.5 - 6.5. Plants should be spaced 6 to 8 feet apart to allow room for vines to mature. The Frontenac™ Grape Vine has a semi-trailing growth habit and is a fast grower, so give it a trellis or support to keep the vines off the ground.
Growing Frontenac™ Grape Vine
Mature Frontenac™ Grape Vines will stand 4 to 6 feet tall. This plant is easy to grow, and the grape vine produces fruit after 2 to 4 years.
Grape vines make excellent container plants. Select a large container that is light in color because dark colors, like black, absorb sunlight and will make the soil too hot for the roots. Make sure the container drains well, and water your vine when the top layer of soil feels dry.
Watering Frontenac™ Grape Vine
New plants prefer damp conditions and need consistent water during the first year. Water Frontenac™ Grape Vines every 10 to 14 days.
Feeding Frontenac™ Grape Vine
Do not fertilize grape vines during the first year. Feed Frontenac™ Grape Vines using a balanced fertilizer when the buds start to open in the spring of the second year.
