BEST ANSWER: Yes that system does work but I feel the vines do better and also a better yield when the roots can run with more room to spread out in the ground
What's the best grape to grow in clay soil?
Jeff R on Mar 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Concords grow well here in Mid-Missouri with lots of clay soil. I have grown both seeded and seedless concords all my life (I'm 77) and they are delicious and make great wine.
Can I grow seedless concord in vsp treallis?
Grape lover on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It requires more work, but if you're already familiar with Vertical Shoot Positioned training, then you certainly can. One benefit would be more exposure to light, which helps reduce risk of fruit rots in humid areas.
Do you spur or cane prune seedless concord?
Stacia M on May 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can do either, your preference.
Would the Concord seedless grape vine cross pollinate with a muscadine vine if planted close by?
Daniel T on Oct 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Geneticists have been trying to cross-breed Muscadine and bunch grapes for decades. Generally, while they do have some homologous chromosomes, any successful crosses were sterile. A better question might be should you try growing bunch grapes in the southeast? The disease pressure and pest pressure is very high where muscadine thrive. So, while it may be remotely possible to have a seeded crop one year, the pressures of disease and pests limit your potential success. It will not cause your bunch grapes to be permanently seeded, if at all. Reliance is self-pollinating which further reduces a seeded crop one year, but it will definitely not alter the genetics of your seeded bunch grapevines. They will remain seedless. If you???re concerned about seeded grapes on your Reliance vine, as unlikely as it seems, you can bag the clusters when the flower buds appear. Once the flowers close you can remove the bags. If it were me, I wouldn???t worry about cross-pollination. But then I wouldn???t grow bunch grapes where muscadines like to grow. Muscadines are more disease and pest resistant than bunch grapes.
Will this vine reach the top of a twenty foot tall trellis?
Billy on Apr 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our vine grew to be at least 20 feet tall at the end of the second summer after we planted it. It is a beautiful, productive vine. We were careful to irrigate it properly and to feed it and prune it.
Can I plant in a large pot on each end of a clothes line and let them grow across the lines?
Timsmom on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Regarding your question of planting grape vines in pots:
Yes.... you can grow plants in containers. The larger the container and the better the soil than the better your results.
Things to be mindful of raised containers dry out faster than plants in the ground. Also the soil heats up more in the summer and gets as cold as the outside air temperature in the winter. Root burn from cold injury can be prevented by watering in the winter. A block of ice is less cold sometimes than the ambient air temperature.

There are always risks but the advantages are equally rewarding.
How do they winter?
Phillip S on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These are suited for zones 5-9, so they will survive a winter there with no problem if they are properly mulched in the fall. If you were to try and grow Concords in a zone further north than Zone 5, you would be risking the vine's survival.
I'm in zone 5b, I planted my concord seedless grapes Sept. 30th. Roughly when should the grapes start growing again? Is there a certain ground temperature that wakes the back up or something else?
Jeremiah H on Apr 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jeremiah, I hope you have better luck with the "SEEDLESS" grapes than I have had. Mine turned out to be SEEDED not SEEDLESS like they were suppose to be. You won't know for 2 years, and then you'd have to start all over.
To help with your question. I'm in zone 7 and mine have shown signs of life for about 2 weeks now.
Good Luck and hope you got what you paid for. I did not!

Can seedless grapes be planted near seeded grapes?
George W on Aug 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I had Mars Seedless planted near Niagara and Concord for years. The vines didn't grow as fast as the Concord, and it was a challenge to keep the critters away from the harvest. One thing I learned the hard way is to not use 2-4D broad leaf weed killer anywhere near grapes. I treated a nearby field and the fumes and drift all but killed the grapes. It took 3 years for the plants that did survive, to recover. A professional grape farmer clued me into that hazard, but I fell victim at my own hand, not knowing that 50 to 100ft would NOT be distance enough.
can i plant different varieties of grapes in the same row?
BETH R. on Jun 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes ... within limits. Do NOT mix seedless with seeded grapes (they will all or mostly all produce seeds). And different varieties will have different spreading characteristics, so the spacing will require thought.
Are these 2 year old #1 rating and certified virus free?
Duane R on Oct 10, 2020
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. Our grapes will typically take 2-3 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit. ???Some of the trees and plants grown on the premises belong to Stark Bro's and some do not. However, In accordance with the Missouri Plant Law, the plants and premises belonging to Stark Bro's Nurseries & Orchards Co are duly inspected by an authorized inspector to be found free of injurious insect pests and plant diseases.

I am interested in the Concord grape for a bird-friendly garden because it is derived from the native fox grape, but not as large. Do you know if the same moth caterpillars and beetles/leafhoppers feed on Concord as on Vitis labrusca?
Gabriele M on Jun 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Unfortunately we do not have any information on the resistance of bugs for this variety, just that it is disease resistant.

Did I miss the planting season this year? I am in southern California, I am not sure if it is too late now to start plant grapes
Wade G on May 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. 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.
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.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
Do you ship these as bare root plant?
Jules on Apr 15, 2020

Will different seedless grapes work as pollinators for each other?
E C on Apr 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. Grapes are self pollinating so they do not require another plant to bear fruit. However if 1 or more varieties are planted close together your crop yield will be larger.
How old are the grape vines that you sell?
Liam M on Mar 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Don???t know the age. All I know is that the vines that Starker sends are doing their first production of grapes in 3 years. This is in Northern CA that has a Mediterranean climate

I have two yr old Concord White grapes. My grapes have black spots?. I live on coast of NC
Edward on Jun 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It sounds like black rot. Prune off the obviously affected parts of the grape vine with a sterile knife or grape shears, sterilizing between cuts. Remove all spotted leaves and the black, shrunken grapes. Remove all parts of the plant that are affected by the black rot and clean up any debris under the tree - fallen fruit, leaves, twigs, anything. If you've had a wet spring, that is probably the cause.
Can I grow these near elderberry?
Brandy Z on May 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Sure. There is no compatibility problem between these two species.
If I order three gravevines at the same time, will I be charged 3 times the shipping, or will the rate of $9.99 pay for shipping all three?
Freda K on May 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Flat-rate shipping offers means you pay 9.99 for whatever you buy, whether it's one item or 50.
How much sun does this grape need?
Cynthia W on Apr 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: All grape vines need full sun, at least 6 hours a day.
What kind of soil?
Elizabeth B S on Feb 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Grapes like loamy soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5.
How long afteryou plant the bare root concord grapes does it start growing leaves.?
todd k on Apr 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That will depend upon the temperatures where you live. It should start leafing out 2-3 weeks after planting.
What does shallow cultivation mean and how do you do that with grape vines?
todd k on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Grape vines don't like their roots to be disturbed, and so when you cultivate around them, do so shallowly. Don't dig down deep or you may damage the root system. A pronged garden claw is a great tool for shallow cultivating.
Do theese plants need to be acclimated?
todd k on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All of our plants, except bare-root trees, need to be acclimated.
I've already purchased three of these vines but now a friend is telling me that we have Pierce's disease here and that they won't survive. Are they susceptible or will they be resistant to Pierce's? I plan to plant them anyway but I am curious. I am in Auburn, AL.
Jennifer C on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There have been studies showing the bacterium that causes Pierce's Disease does indeed affect Concord grape vines. The disease, which is prominent in southern regions (especially coastal areas), is spread by sharpshooters or similar pests that transmit the bacterium to the vine's vascular system when they feed. If you find that your Concord grape vines become affected, removal is suggested. At that point, you may want to contact your local county cooperative extension for advice on resistant varieties recommended for your area.
Is this a Mars? What is the official name of a seedless Concord?
squashblossom on Feb 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Concord Seedless, though similar in flavor and texture to Concord, is unrelated. The clusters and berries are much smaller than Concord. The fruit matures earlier, has high flavor, and makes excellent pies and preserves. Mars is another variety of Concord Seedless, which we no longer carry.

Best Grapes I've ever had!
I planted mine in November 2012 in the dark after work...but boy was it worth it! All but one grew very well in 2013. I pruned them back(you must prune them) and got my first grapes in 2014. Last year, I had a TON of grapes and they were absolutely fantastic! I've gone organic in fertilizing and such and I swear that helps. You HAVE to prune them though. I did find, in New Hampshire, that mine became ripe in August instead of September. I enjoyed some in August and waited on most till September wondering if the flavor would increase(if that's even possible) but the birds got to them and, in many cases, took a single bite of each grape leaving the rest to rot. So I personally will pick them in August going forward. Love these grapes and convinced my neighbor to try two herself. I'll be helping her plant those this week!

Concord Seedless Grape
I purchased the concord seedless grape vine about 2 yrs ago and have been very satisfied with it's performance. Second season it produced grapes and this season it looks to be in very healthy condition. Great for making grape juice or jam. Taste is sweet and requires no sugar if used for juicing. Would recommend.

Glad you asked ...When I got my vine I was very excited and I couldn't wait to get it in the ground. It barely took 2 weeks before it began to sprout. It was such a lovely sight. The roots took to the soil really quick and now I'm pleased to tell you I'm the proud owner of the best grape arbor in the whole area. I'm with it everyday. I give it it's daily regiment of water, feed and good ol' TLC!! Honestly Stark Bros. you put out the best product around. I was blessed to have discovered you. You all make a guy with no green thumb look a pro. I'm very satisfied. Thank you all!!!

One Year Mark
Last year, I received my seedless Concord grape vine in wonderful health. I couldn't plant it the first day it arrived, so I left it in its packaging to wait until I could plant. That night, my husband took out all the trash... The grapevine in its box went with it. Out of sight out of mind, I forgot about it for the next four days. By the time I remembered it, I panicked and thought it was gone. Lo' and behold, trash hadn't run yet, but the box had been rained on and smooshed beneath other people's trash in the dumpster. We fished it out and the vine had been snapped, roots were nearly completely dry. Again, I just knew it was a goner. Planted it anyway because I was desperate....

It survived.
Grew four feet.
It even fruited.
Birds got everything, but I was just happy it even grew. Lol

This year, it's caged to keep the birds out. Vine is twice as vigorous this year, at least 8 feet already, and fruiting twice as much. Can't wait to try the grapes themselves. That will be the cherry on top if they taste true to the original Concord grape.

Will I buy from Stark Bro.'s again?
Heck yea.
They certainly sent me a fine plant that survived the hell I put it through. Good job guys.

A Good Grape
This is a good grape, but in our opinion, the Reliance tastes better, and the Marquis is more productive. If something happens to our Concord, I will replace it with one of those two. That said, it is a good grape. Growing well and producing fruit each year.
February 26, 2017
they are NOT seedless
We complained about it to you over a year ago,You said we have seeded grapes around us that's why our grapes have seed's in them. NOT so, there are not any grapes anywhere around us. now they are around three years old, The grandkid's don't enjoy them, their are too many seed's in one grape. NOT FUN. If these truly are seedless grapes will they ever come back without seed's?
