Additionally, Schuyler grapes are highly resistant to diseases and pests, making them an ideal choice for the home gardener. Read on to learn more about Schuyler grapes and how to successfully grow them in your garden.
When planting Schuyler grapes, it's important to choose a location that has full sun and good air circulation. The soil should be well-drained and amended with compost or manure to ensure healthy growth. Plant the grapes in trenches to ensure the roots are well-covered and the plant is firmly in the ground. Ensure that the vines are spaced at least 8 feet apart to prevent overcrowding.
Water the plants deeply once a week, or more often in periods of drought. Mulch around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and prevent weeds from sprouting. Prune the vines in late winter to encourage new growth and promote good air circulation. When the grapes begin to ripen, harvest them carefully and store them in a cool, dry place.
