Grapes for the Millions! Grapes are the most popular and widely grown fruit in the world, delicious for fresh eating and as juice, wine, jelly, or raisins. Most people rely on the relatively few varieties sold in the supermarket. Yet grapes are so varied and adaptable that regardless of where you live -- from the tropics to the Arctic -- there are types that will grow well for you, providing a perennial harvest and demanding little in return. Now there's no reason to settle for the same old varieties. Every gardener or orchardist should grow a few vines, and The Grape Grower is your ticket to getting started. Grapes for Every Place and Every Taste! Author and long-time grape grower Lon Rombough provides all the information you need to succeed with grapes: from siting your vineyard to pruning and training; from improving your soil to revitalizing an old neglected grapevine; from greenhouse growing to breeding your own unique varieties. Along the way he emphasizes organically approved methods, including products and techniques for controlling pests and disease. There's even information on native North American grapes and on the many hybrid grapes that have been developed from them. Complete descriptions of hundreds of grape varieties let you choose the ones that will perform best in your region, including bunch grapes and muscadines for humid, southern climates. The Grape Grower is the most comprehensive and useful book ever to focus on table grapes for the home gardener or small-scale vineyardist. Whether you're just getting started, or already have a hundred vines, this book is an indispensable resource that can literally save you a "bunch" of time, money, and frustration.
