Glenora Grape Plant
Resistant to Phylloxera (the scourge of European grape crops) and mildew!
The fruit is simply scrumptious -- blue-black, extra-large, and entirely seedless, with an abundance of sweet juice and a unique spicy underbite. The skin is quite thin, giving you more real grape flavor, and the flesh is firm but tender and juicy-sweet. Until you've tasted this grape straight from your own garden, you won't believe such a combination of flavors could exist in such a small, perfect package!
Expect a bumper crop every year, too -- the tiny white flowers are set early (late spring) and the fruit quickly ripens, extending the season by a few weeks. 'Glenora' is a grape you can grow just about anywhere in the country except the far north, too -- it is quite able to hold its own despite heat, humidity, and poor soil, though it prefers a light and sandy mixture for best growth. You'll never have to pamper this grape to get big, satisfying crops!
If given the recommended annual pruning, this vine reaches 8 feet tall and can spread almost indefinitely. It is ideal for training up an arbor, pergola, or trellis. And unlike many other varieties, which were devastated by Phylloxera when this disease spread through the European crops, 'Glenora' is completely resistant to this disease. It also shows superior ability to resist mildew, making it suitable for humid southern climates.
'Glenora' is a self-pollinating grape, so you need plant only one vine to get fruit. It will begin bearing about 2 years after planting. Give 'Glenora' a try this year and find out just how easy growing your own grapes really is! Zones 5-9. Bareroot.
