Chardonel is a hybrid grape variety with a great deal of history and popularity. It is a crossing of two of the world's most widely planted varieties - Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc. This hybrid grape was created in the 1950s in France and was first planted in the United States in the 1970s. Chardonel has become one of the most popular hybrid grapes on the market today, with its ability to produce light, crisp whites with a hint of sweetness. It is a versatile grape, used for both white wines and sparkling wines.
If you are considering planting Chardonel grapes, there are a few important things to consider before getting started. The first is choosing a location that has well-drained soil and full sun exposure. Chardonel is a late-ripening grape, so it needs a location that will be warm enough for the grapes to reach full maturity. You will also need to ensure that the soil has adequate drainage so that the vines can get the moisture they need without becoming waterlogged.
When it comes to planting, Chardonel vines should be planted in rows that are spaced at least six feet apart. The vines should be planted eight to ten feet apart, with the canes facing south. It is also important to prune your Chardonel vines in order to keep them healthy and productive. The best time to prune is in the spring, just before bud break. During the growing season, it is important to keep the vines well-watered and to watch for signs of disease or pests.
Chardonel is a hardy grape variety, but it is important to take the time to make sure that your vines are properly cared for. With the right location and adequate care, Chardonel can produce some of the most delicious and flavorful wines on the market. If you are looking for a great grape to grow in your garden, Chardonel is an excellent choice.
