The concord is the number one grape for sweet, tangy juice and nutritious snacking. Plus, a new study has shown that grape juice has many of the same health benefits as red wine without the alcohol! And where would a peanut butter and jelly sandwich be without it?
But I’ve found them difficult to get in supermarkets and produce stands. So I decided to grow my own! These mid-season concords are deep purple, rich and sweet. The vigorous vines are tough and easy to prune for prolific fruit production, too.
The method is simple. Grow them in a “T” shape along wires or a trellis. Once a year, prune hard and keep pruning. If it doesn’t look like you’ve taken too much, prune some more- all the way back to about a three foot central cane.
I once ran over a concord with the lawnmower and couldn’t handle all the grapes it produced the next year!
Just make sure you plant it with plenty of full sun in well-drained soil and you’ll be amazed.
