With its seedless and delicious fruits, the Reliance Grape Vine is perfect for the home grower. Developing large clusters of deep red grapes from July to August, its fruits have a soft skin and sweet taste. With vigorous growth and good disease resistance, this Vitis is one of the easier grapes to grow. Being cold hardy, Reliance Grape Vine is suitable for growing in zones 4 through 8. It grows to around 4 to 5 feet tall.
Reliance Grape Vine Care
Potted vines are best planted in spring when the ground becomes workable. Requiring full sun to fruit well, the Reliance Grape Vine does best when grown in free-draining soil that does not become water-logged. Pruning when dormant is essential for keeping this grapevine productive and in good health. If growing more than one plant, a spacing of 6 to 8 feet apart is recommended.
Growing Reliance Grape Vine
Depending on the growing conditions, the Reliance Grape Vine can take 2 to 3 years to produce a viable harvest, although it will certainly be worth the wait. As a cold-hardy grape, Reliance is well-suited for growing outdoors in a south-facing site. With its attractive foliage, this grapevine is well-suited to growing up a trellis, fence or arbor.
When growing this grape in a pot, a large container of around 18 to 20 inches wide and deep with adequate drainage holes is recommended. Grape vines prefer to be grown in well-drained soil; perlite can be added to increase the drainage properties.
Watering Reliance Grape Vine
Regular watering is required upon planting and for the first growing season. After which, watering on a weekly basis is generally necessary, especially while the fruits are setting.
Feeding Reliance Grape Vine
Grapevines can be fertilized to encourage vigorous growth and maintain plant health. A balanced fertilizer can be applied in spring or early summer, but not after this period as this may lead to frost damage in winter.
