What type of trellis is best for the Hope grapes the high Cordon or the mid wire Cordon trellis?
Barney N on May 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can successfully grow this variety on either type of trellis, but the high-wire cordon may be just slightly better for procumbent (drooping) varieties like Hope.
How old are the grape plants?

I planted my hope grapes in March of 2016.
The plants were potted and already leafed out and very small seedlings unlike the concord and Somerset grapes I planted that were bare root and much larger and dormant. Initially we had a late frost and the leaves burned off. However they recovered and they grew a few canes each about 8 feet in length but did not fruit in 2016. I was surprised at the amount of growth they put on the first year. They overwintered very well and this spring they have loads of new branches with several flower bunches that look like they will yield fruit. Overall I am very satisfied with the product and seem to be doing well in central Pennsylvania.

Good product from a great company
I purchased two Hope Grape vines April 2014. They grew strong and produced several bunches of grapes the first year. Today they are loaded with grapes. I have been buying fruit trees since 1973. Stark Bros can't be beat.

worth buying
Grape vines are doing great. I planted them in big pots on me deck and they are growing like mad reaching for the sky. Too soon for me to tell if they will produce grapes.

Just add water and some manure
Taste is good. Fruit was small this year but my irrigation was probably not sufficient. We'll see next year.

So far good
I purchased both the Hope and Faith varieties. The Hope ones are in their second year and starting to get healthy vines on the trellis. The Faith ones never survived unfortunately. Next year being the third year is when I expect the most from them. Normally the third year of my new grape plantings is the turning point where I start to see fruit.

Grew well
Grew well in first year - the main vertical trunk grew to 3 feet high then another 3 feet along the horizontal trellis. I am happy with growth in first year. Now in its second spring - March 2017 - buds are swelling and about to break out. Looking good so far.

Hope grapes
This is the first season for the grapes and they are coming back very nicely. The are several small clusters of grapes coming on. Looking forward to having my own fresh grapes.

Hope Grape
Those plants do not do well in the winter season of Eastern Pennsylvania. First the winter is harsh, and second the shipped plants are too small to stand this bad weather.

Minimal Start
The plant that I received was no more than 4 inches above the soil. I will be able to keep it growing until the end of the season when I will take it to my son (a gift) in Atlanta GA. I was expecting a larger plant.

It died
The plant was slow starting last year but even though we had a very mild winter it has not come back this spring. I dont really have any experience growing grapes but i hoped the hope would do better.
