Alwood grape is similar in appearance to Concord with larger berries and a pronounced labrusca aroma. Vines are very productive, have above average disease resistance and grow well in a variety of soils.
Grapes have been cultivated for thousands of years, and the ALWOOD grape is no exception. This hardy, disease-resistant variety is perfect for those looking for a reliable crop with a great flavor. ALWOOD grapes are ideal for growing in cooler climates and are relatively easy to care for. With a few simple planting instructions, you can get your vineyard thriving in no time.
The ALWOOD grape is a European-American hybrid grape variety developed by the University of Minnesota. It is a vigorous and productive variety that produces round, sweet, and juicy berries. They are perfect for making wine, juice, and jams, as well as being a delicious snack.
When planting ALWOOD grapes, keep in mind that they prefer full sun and well-draining soil. Choose a location that has plenty of daytime sunshine and good air circulation. The soil should be amended with organic matter such as compost or manure to ensure that the plant has plenty of nutrients.
When planting ALWOOD grapes, space vines at least five feet apart and bury the roots at least two feet deep. Water regularly and mulch around the base of the vine to keep the soil cool and moist. Prune the vines regularly to promote healthy growth and remove any dead or diseased wood.
ALWOOD grapes are self-fertile, so you only need to plant one vine for a successful crop. However, planting multiple vines will encourage cross-pollination and a larger harvest. After planting, you should expect to see fruit in the second year and a full crop in the third year.
Harvesting ALWOOD grapes is best done when the grapes are fully ripened. The berries should be plump and have a deep purple color. Gently twist the berries off the vine and store them in a cool, dry place.
With the right care and attention, ALWOOD grapes are an excellent choice for a home vineyard. With their disease resistance and sweet flavor, they are sure to be a favorite of yours for years to come.
