My Hardiness Zone ?
The USDA hardiness zones offer a guide to varieties that will grow well in certain climates. Each zone corresponds to the minimum winter temperatures experienced in a given area. Make sure that your hardiness zone lies within the zone compatability range of this variety before ordering.

Size & Spacing

Mature Size

When your plant matures, it will be approximately 8 - 10' tall x 10 - 12' wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 10 - 12' apart to ensure room for growth.


This variety is self pollinating.

In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!

Alexander B on May 2, 2020
I planted the grape vine shortly after I received it last year. Since it did not show any signs of life after several weeks, I called and was advised to dig around the plant in order to shock it out of dormancy which I did. Soon, it sprouted leaves. This year, however, it shows no sign of life again and again I dug around it with no result. What do you think is wrong?
Richard G on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I planted one last year.....grew...this spring it had been chewed off by rabbits...l thought
it was dead.....2 weeks ago it started to grow....1 stem is 2 ft.long....You never know with Mother Nature!
Can we buy a 5 year old vine?
Richard P on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The age and size information for our grapes is as follows: 4??? pot: 6-12 months old and 4??? tall bare root: 1 year old and 12-18??? tall. The roots on a five-year-old vine would be far too developed to dig and sell as bare-root, and would require far too large a pot.

Our grapes will typically take 2-3 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit. You'll be harvesting grapes before you know it!
can I eat the grape leaves or are they sprayed im trying to make dolma?
Adrew on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn???t eat the leaves that are shipped with it. But once you have planted it and the vine is growing the leaf health is in your hands. If you want to eat the leaves only spray them with something organic. I use dawn dishwashing liquid diluted in water, same thing I use for my roses to prevent aphids.
Can I get a little older plant ? 3-4 year old
Jackie L on Oct 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jackie - We appreciate you reaching out to us. Unfortunately, the grapes we sell are not that old but they do transplant better when they are young. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
Are all concord grapes the same?
Nature's Cradle on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In a sense yes. The Thomcord variety is a hybrid and the seedless is different in that it has no seeds. To answer your question though anytime you hybridize you change some of the original characteristics. If you want just plain old fashioned Concord then order just that one.
I bought a property last year that had a couple of grape vines. These vines have been neglected for years and have black rot and possibly other issues. I would estimate the vines to be over 10 years old, and haven't been pruned for years. What recommendations do you have for starting over with these vines? I am not afraid to prune them back and wait for fruit, I just want to make the vines healthy and productive again. Thanks!
Mary H on Aug 1, 2018
Could I plant different kinds of grape vines together?
MaryJo L on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes. But if you plant grapes where the grapes (the fruit) look similar, and the
vines intertwine, you could have a bit of trouble knowing which kind you are harvesting.
I live in So Ca grapes grow well here (wineries!) Can I plant Concord grapes in the fall or is it necessary to wait for spring?
Stephanie M on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees: 1) when the ground is not frozen, 2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F, and 3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.
what is the best Concord grape plant for zone 4a and 4b?
Em S on Nov 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I planted a Concord grape two years ago (only know of one Concord
grape variety.) It took the first year to get established and grew about eight inches but this year it grew about 18 inches up to the arbor I have for it. We live in central western PA and are usually considered in zone 4. The vine looked great this summer and is outperforming the red seedless I planted the same time. Concords are really hardy once they get established and the only thing most people have issues w/is not trimming hard enough once the vine starts to grow. Good luck woth yours.
We will have trellis. can we plant concord grape with another variety at the same trellis ?
Nannie ATF on Sep 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can have another variety on the same trellis. Just make sure you leave enough space for both vines to grow into, without getting mixed up with each other. I recommend that each vine has a total space of at least 12 feet to grow in (6 feet on both sides of the vine). You can plant in smaller spaces, but it will mean a lot more work with pruning to keep them from growing out of control.
When would the concord grapes ripen here in zone 9B?
Walter P on Feb 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry! The grapes should ripen late August to early September in Zone 9B.
Does one pot come with a cluster of grapes ????
It a preaching illustration I would love to use and give the vine to the ministry I???m preaching in on July. Also does it come with seeds? It the main purpose of being fruitful.

Thank you so much
Chaplain on Jun 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Our plants are not ready to bear fruit at this time, they are young and typically do not start to produce for 2-3 years after planting.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
Are these gmo? Or herloom?
Destiny G on Mar 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Ya got me
Are these (Concord grape) 1 or 2 year vines? Are they shipped bare-root or potted? And how tall are they?
Larry on Jan 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That will depend upon which option you choose. Please see the "Choose an option" dropdown menu near the top of the page, which will show you the various sizes/options that are available. A 4??? pot: 6-12 months old and 4??? tall bare root: 1 year old and 12-18??? tall. Our grapes will typically take 2-3 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit.
What country do these seeds come from?
Elaine C on Dec 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Elaine. They come from the US.
Are these grapes resistant to brown rot and powdery mildew?
Marguerite A on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Concord grapes have some powdery mildew resistance, especially compared to other grapes. Concord grapes don't really experience brown rot, it'a actually black rot (and/or "ripe rot" which is a brownish-rot that occurs at ripening time, but is not the same "brown rot" to which peaches are susceptible). Concord grapes are susceptible to this. A good spraying program can control both issues quite well. A copper fungicide (do not use a sulfur fungicide, it will damage the foliage) will work well; it will also prevent powdery mildew. Please follow the package directions. This is labeled for organic growing: //
are the concord grapes the small or large concord grapes ?
shadow on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. There really aren't two size varieties of Concord grapes; the size of the fruit depends upon weather and soil conditions, available nutrients and the way the vines are thinned/pruned. If you don't thin and prune, the fruit will be small; if you do, the fruit will be larger.
when is Concord's recommended picking time in zone 5 ?
Dina B on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. There is no certain time to harvest; much depends upon that season's weather conditions. As a rule of thumb, the color of the vine can be a clue. During the growing season, the vines and stems are light to medium-green. When they begin to brown, the grapes are ripening and ready to harvest. Taste one! You will know. When the vine and stems are dark brown or black, the fruit will be overripe and harvest-time has passed.
do you need to cover to keep birds off at picking time?
David C on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. You don't NEED to net your grapes, but if you don't, the birds will definitely pick at them. We have a smaller-mesh netting that is ideal for keeping the birds out of your fruit:
What are the growing years expectancy for concord grapes?
Arlene R on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As long as the Concord variety is recommended for your area, a healthy vine with proper care and regular maintenance can live and produce for as many as 50 years or more!
I planted a Concord several years ago in Nebraska. It produces large grapes, but they fail to color up and ripen. Could result from increasing shade in August/September, or are Concords not suitable for Nebraska?
Malcolm on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends on where they are growing in Nebraska. A variety like Concord should be fine in southeastern Nebraska, but northwest/north central Nebraska may not offer a long enough growing season to fully ripen the fruit (even if the plant is recommended for your USDA hardiness zone). If this may be the case for you, a short-season, cold-hardy variety would work better in your area. Your local UNL horticulture extension would be a good source to reach out to for grape variety recommendations that are adapted to your location in Nebraska.
I know it is late in the season but is it to late to buy the Concorde grape vine and put it in the ground? We are located in Memphis.

A Greenhorn with His Grapes
Without experience or expectation, my whimsical thought to plant grapes in the yard of my suburban city home was incongruous with my lack of gardening/farming skill or long-term interest. Still, I did it. Well into retirement age, the project was a whim. A reader here should correctly assume that grapes I planted did not get caring attention. That would be correct. I did, however, do a couple of positive things related to the process. First, I called my local agriculture extension office and asked about the suitability for growing grapes and got a solid thumbs up. I chose to put Concord grapes (with seeds) into he ground, because that’s what Mom did too many, many years ago and she used them to make jelly I like. I found Stark Brothers online. I ordered two plants and when they came I did as their online instructions suggested - dig holes eight feet apart and with lots of elbow room in a sunny spot, and then mix in compost (credit: my wife made it), sand, and mulch. Things I did not do, include putting in a good trellis structure (I only have a four steel posts with multiple wire strands strung between them) and I did not leave much space for expanding in the future. Other than watering regularly, I pretty much walked away. The two plants were planted in May (2015) and they did the rest, growing and entwining themselves along my wires. As expected, there were no grapes or signs of grapes last year, their first growing season. In February (2016) I pruned them back, because the Stark Brothers instructions said to do it. I had no idea where to cut, but just did. Afraid to lose all the good growth I had accumulated last year, I probably did not get rid of enough, but that seems consistent with my overall approach. Shortly after, when freezing ended, shoots pushed out in all sorts of directions (yes, untrained) and they were and are covered with little clusters, which look like grapes! Amazing! In spite of how they have been treated, they are trying to produce for me. Life is tenacious and very powerful. It finds a way to thrive. This year I have found there are a few people in my neighborhood who also are growing grapes. Now we stand and compare notes on our experiences, though I am embarrassed by my failure to build a proper growing structure and failure to prune properly. Who knew there was a social benefit from grapes, other than wine? And now I want to plant more and am disappointed to not have space for it. Maybe I should get through this harvest first - September, I think.

How easy is this! And if not, then Stark Brothers details every aspect of the process with volumes of online support information.

Delicious Concords
I purchased 3 Concord Grape vines from Stark Bro's. They arrived on time and in good condition.Two of the vines did exceptionally well. The third vine grew more slowly but all three vines produced wonderful fruit the 2nd year! I am completely satisfied with my purchase!

Fruited the first year! :)
I sent a very large well rooted dormant bare root plant that's I planted in March of 2016. The first year it put out three vines that grew out to be 10 feet each long with several lateral branches. Also two small bunches of grapes formed which were very tasty with seeds and the trademark slip skin. The vines overwintered well and this year has a lot of growth and flower buds.

Stark Bro's Concord Grapes are grear
I purchased the stark brothers Concorde grapes a a year ago. I followed the recommended planting instructions – and now those grapes are 6 to 8 feet tall as they grow up the trellis. The plants came with an excellent rootstock. The grapes join my other Stark brother plantings of apple and pear trees, BlackBerries, and strawberry. I continue to receive excellent service, excellent products, and excellent results with all of the stark brothers purchases.

The grapes look very good. We are happy with them. It's a little early to see how they will bear yet but the leaf growth looks great.
