Catawba Grape

Description
This spicy-flavored, slipskin grape forms medium-sized, round, purplish-red fruits that grow vigorously along trailing vines. Prior to the introduction of Concord, Catawba Grape was the most popular grape cultivated in the U.S. and was prominently used for wine production in the mid 19th century. Grapes develop in medium to large, well-formed clusters. Capitalize on the distinct flavor of Catawba by crafting your own Rosé and sparkling wine, juices and jellies! Catawba Grape ships established in its own 1 gallon pot. Vitis Iabrusca 'Catawba'
