Trees That Please Nursery propagates several different table grape varieties including: Red Flame, Thompson, Himrod, Canadice, Reliance, Concord, and Venus. These are all seedless, fresh eating or table grapes. Fruit color ranges from red to pink for Red Flame, Canadice, and Reliance. White or green, for Himrod and Thompson, and blue to purple blue for Concord and Venus. All are very tasty and have their own taste attributes. These can be used for fresh eating, juice, or even wine.
All of these grape varieties normally continue growth until the first killing frost. At that point leaves are killed while attached to the vines and give the appearance of being freeze dried.
Likewise and remaining fruit previously hidden by reveal their presence. This late in the season grapes have usually turned to raisins.
The grape variety Venus (Vitis labrusca) is an American variety that gives very good fall color. Leaves often turn brilliant red-maroon of blood red. Venus can be quite showy in fall.
