Lemberger grapes are becoming an increasingly popular variety of grape used for both wine production and fresh eating. With its sweet, juicy flavor, it is no wonder why more and more people are opting to grow their own Lemberger grapes. If you are considering growing your own Lemberger grapes, here are some helpful tips to get you started.
When choosing a location for your Lemberger grapes, make sure it is in a sunny spot that gets at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. The soil should be well-drained and fertile, and the pH level should be between 6.0 and 8.0. When planting, make sure to space the vines 6-10 feet apart and bury the roots 2-3 inches deep. The best time to plant your Lemberger grapes is in the spring.
Once your Lemberger grapes are planted, you will need to provide them with proper care. Make sure to keep the soil moist, but not waterlogged. You may need to irrigate during dry periods. Mulch around the base of the vines to help retain moisture. Prune the vines in early summer and again in late summer, removing any dead or diseased branches and shaping the vine.
It is also important to provide your Lemberger grapes with adequate nutrients. They will need a regular dose of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. You can add a balanced fertilizer to the soil or use a foliar spray of liquid nutrients.
Harvesting your Lemberger grapes will depend on how you plan to use them. If you are making wine, you will want to wait until the grapes are fully ripe. If you are eating them fresh, you can pick them when they are still slightly green.
With the right care and attention, you can successfully grow your own Lemberger grapes. With its sweet, juicy flavor, you will be sure to enjoy your own homegrown grapes.
