Marquis Grapes are a delicious, purple-hued variety of grapes that are great for eating fresh, making jams and jellies, and for winemaking. Marquis Grapes are an early-maturing variety that ripens before other varieties. These grapes produce large clusters of deep purple fruit with a sweet flavor. Planting instructions for growing Marquis Grapes are relatively straightforward.
To start, select an area of your garden that gets full sun and has well-draining soil. Plant your Marquis Grapes in late spring or early summer. Dig a hole that is slightly larger than the root ball and deep enough to completely cover the roots. Place the plant in the hole and fill the area around the root ball with soil. Make sure to firm the soil around the plant to ensure adequate contact with the root system.
Water the plant deeply right after planting and then water once a week during the growing season. Be sure to keep the soil moist but not soggy. As the plants grow, you may need to add more soil around the base of the vine to ensure adequate contact with the roots.
Marquis Grapes require a support to grow on. A trellis or arbor works best as this allows the grapes to hang downward and helps to keep the clusters off the ground. Make sure to secure the trellis or arbor with stakes or posts before planting the grapes.
Once established, prune the vines to encourage healthy growth. Prune out any dead or diseased branches, and remove any clusters of grapes that are not ripening. Prune back the vines in the winter to keep the plants from becoming too large and overgrown.
Marquis Grapes will be ready for harvest in late summer or early fall. To pick the grapes, simply cut or pinch the clusters off the vine. Enjoy the delicious flavor of fresh Marquis Grapes or use them to make jams, jellies, and wines.
