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.

It's Easy to Plant your Concord Grape

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Concord Grape.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Concord Grape gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Concord Grape again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

These plants were 5 ft tall or so when delivered and already had clusters of grapes - we were very impressed!! They were planted at our vacation home so hopefully we will get to enjoy eating them when we go back in early July.

The first year I was to prune back my vines, my German Shepherd 'pruned' one of my vines for me. He simply chewed it down to about 5 inches from the ground. The next year my 'pruned' vine produced a most wonderful crop of grapes; however, they rarely make it into the house. They're just too good to wait to eat them inside. Each year after correct pruning the grapes produce a prodigious amount of grapes for me. This year I am hoping that I get to make juice and/or grape conserve

Still hoping
I purchased the 2-year old stock and received the tree in August 2014. I have not seen any grapes; still hoping. I have had to prune the tree about 4-5 times. Some leaves are dying out, some are green still and there are a few new ones. I have this tree on my patio replanted in a huge container. It seems still small for a 2-year old stock. Glad it's showing some life in the tree.

I live in California is it ok to order this plant now and plant it when it arrives or is the summer heat going to be too much to properly transfer it right now?
Marissa F on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: Although it's best to plant the Concord Grape in the early Spring or early Fall. However if temperatures aren't scorching hot, around the 90's or above then it will be fine to go ahead and plant now.

Are these seedless concord grapes?
JIM G on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: I have never heard of a seedless concord grape. However, the sweetness and taste are well worth eating , inspite of a tiny pit. I regret that I can not get these grapes shipped to me, as I live in Arizona.

If I plant now (Sept) how long until I get fruit?
Area 9 on Sep 4, 2014
Best Answer: you may get fruit next year, It depends on the vine and the weather conditions. When i planted my vine in late spring, did not get fruit until the following year. The vine had the entire summer and fall to adjust and grow out more.

Are they seedless?
Patti on Jul 24, 2014
Best Answer: The Concord Grapes I bought are not seedless. I use mine to make jelly and wine. A small tip, you can freeze them and the seeds, outside peal are easily removed. Plus you also get a lot more juice out of the grapes by freezing them.

When we received our two vines, they each had two branches to start with. One of them has leaves budding on the branches as we expected. (Yay!) But the other has budding leaves down low, do I need to trim them to encourage growth higher up? Or can it just start growing down low and not on the bigger vine branch?

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
