America's Favorite Juice Grape

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.

Concord Grape Pollination

Concord Grape are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Concord Grape will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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 nervous
I received this plant and followed instructions to a tee when planting it. Most of the leaves turned a rust color, and over the past few months most of them have been replaced with what appears to be new leaves. As far as growth, it hasn't grown any bigger yet. I am hoping that next year it will grow and produce some grapes.

Be Patient
These vines were well rooted and upon planting, began to produce runners in a week. They do need watering 2-3 times per week for the first growing season. Grapes should appear in 2 years.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Concord Grape

Concord Grape Planting Diretions

Choosing a location: Grapes with their ability to grow in many places around the world, are a great addition to any garden. Your grapes will love a sunny place with well-draining soil. The vine will be quite satisfied with six to eight hours of sunlight. Good drainage is required to keep your plant “happy” and a soil pH between 5.0-7.0 is best. Avoid areas with soil that may be heavy with clay. 

Planting Instructions: 

1) Be sure to keep your grape vines moist right up to planting.

2) Dig a small hole about 6 inches wide and 4-6 inches deep. The width of the hole should allow you to spread the roots. If you are planting multiple grape vines dig your holes 6-8 feet apart. In a situation where you have a lot of clay in the soil break up the glazed areas using a shovel.

3) Stand the plant up and carefully pack the soil back into the hole around the vine. Make sure the *graft union is above the soil line by approximately 6 inches. The "graft union" is a lumpy, raised scar that should be just above the surface of the soil. It is caused when the scion and rootstock are united.

4) Water the vine immediately after planting with 3 gallons of water

5) Grapes are essentially a vine that grow upwards along a structure so they will need a "trellis" for proper support and healthy growth. This is typically a wooden structure made of intertwined boards that allow the vines to wrap around them, providing a sturdy support system. 

Do not use a single stake (similar to growing tomato plants) as this won’t provide enough support for your vines once they start growing.

Watering: Water regularly for the first year about 1 inch (1 1/2-2 gallons) a week. Directly moisten the roots but avoid spraying or misting the grapes. After the vines are a bit more established they will seldom need watering and mulch will no longer be necessary. Be watchful for leaf drop, this is a warning sign that you may be over watering. 

Pollination: Most species of grape are self-fertile but a good rule of "green thumb" is to always plant in pairs. Not only will this assure you a healthy yield of fruit but it will also cover the possibility that the grapes need another separate vine to kick start the fruiting process. 

Pruning: Balanced pruning maintains the vine's form, size, vigor, and next season's fruiting wood. Pruning should be done when the vines are dormant in late winter or early spring. Do not prune when vines freeze, because they are brittle and can damage easily. Leaves around the grape clusters can be removed to expose the fruit to sunlight in a short growing season. In your first growing season multiple shoots will begin to grow and the vine may become bushy. Some trim these back to just one or two shoots. Others prefer to let them grow so they may have a better selection to choose from during the following winter's pruning.

During your first dormant pruning you'll select one or two of the best canes and remove all the others. You'll need to remove all lateral canes as well. Your goal is to achieve a balanced vine of just the right amount of leaves to fully ripen the grapes. Too much shade from vigorous leaf growth produces fewer grapes and less desirable grape qualities. 

Fertilizing: Young vines may not need any fertilizer for the first two to three years. If fertilizing is necessary, apply a small amount of 10-10-10 fertilizer two to three weeks after planting, keeping it one foot away from the vine's base. Apply only when vines appear to need it and only in early spring. Excess nitrogen can cause plants to become vegetative and not flower. Too much fertilizer can also cause possible winter damage and delay the coloring and ripening of fruit. Periodic soil testing once a year is highly recommended.

Harvesting: Some species of Grapes will ripen at different times of the year than others. (Example: Concord grapes in late September, Niagara’s mid-season in August-September, and Catawba’s in late September-October). Taste is the best determining factor if it's time to harvest or not. When fruit appears, test its ripeness by picking a few grapes from different areas and tasting them. If the grapes are sweet, start picking as they ready for harvesting and eating.

  • Grapes will not continue to ripen after picking so be sure not to pick them prematurely.
  • Color and size are not necessarily a good indication of ripe fruit. Only pick the fruit after you’ve tasted it and are certain it is ready.

Grapes are certainly a multi-purpose fruit, being used for wine, baked goods, jams, and for eating fresh off the vine. A fantastic plant addition for any fruit lover!

These make the best tasting jelly.
Amanda R on Feb 17, 2017
These will be going into the ground this week. We grew Concord grapes for years in a different zone that was a little warmer. Now we're trying them here in zone 5. Pruning in Fall always gave me lots of vines for making wreaths. In my opinion, Concord is the best variety for grape jam. The taste is much stronger than the wild grapes we picked up this way this summer. If these establish well here, we'll try planting the white seedless Niagara next year.

When is best to time of year to plant the concord grape? I have not purchased them yet. Should I plant in fall or in the spring in Northern Massachusetts
Gail V on Sep 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From my experience with any grapes, it is best to plant in the spring to give them time to establish a root system. They will go dormant in the winter & around late winter, just before spring, you cut off 2/3 of the plant. This was our second year with two concord grapes and the plant has grown leaps and bounds but no grapes we can pick yet (small scawny things only). I anticipate grapes next summer,our third season.
Where can I buy those concord grapes?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can buy them from

Tonga R on Aug 13, 2017

I am in West Texas. It is already 108 this week. Is it too hot to plant? Should I wait till fall?
Jennifer V on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They can be planted all year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. If you plant your tree during the summer, especially during a heat wave of drought then give your tree extra water. The best time to plant is in the fall, six weeks before the first frost so your tree can get rooted into the ground before winter, or in the spring six weeks after the final frost, giving it time to become established before summer heat sets in. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter.
I live in Central Fl and it is getting close to Christmas.. It is warm but never know when the cold will hit for a spell. Do I plant now or wait for early spring and if I wait how do I care for the sprouts during the winter months?
Margaret S on Dec 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You could plant them now in your area.

Doris M. M on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but I have had better luck with a full size crabapple tree to pollinate all of my fruiting plants and trees.
can i plant this grape in a pot?
maria d on Apr 22, 2016

Good luck

When is the best time to plant these? Can they be planted in August? I live in northern Maryland.
A shopper on Jul 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: August would be a good time to plant the Concord Grape. It's best to plant in the early Spring or early Fall, however if your temperatures aren't scorching hot in the 90's or above its fine to go ahead and plant now.
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.
