As a vintner I was just captured by its appearance.
I thought this grape could evolve into an unique wine and be a conversation piece in the back yard while sampling its introduction.

I am looking for two year old dormant chardonnay plants. What are these ?
kevin a on Oct 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The Hope grape is not of the Chardonnay family it is more of a sweet table grape for fresh eating. You may want to look at the Frontenac, Itasca or the La Crescent grape.

why are grape vine sales prohibited in Eugene Oregon?
Stuart P on Aug 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately this happens to be a product that has state or county agricultural regulations, which prohibit shipment. Sometimes there are local/regional quarantines put in place to halt the spread of certain plant diseases, which does not happen often. While these regulations may change in the near future, we apologize that we cannot ship this item to you at the present time.
In zone 7 when should I plant my grapes? And if I buy them now what do I do with them until that time?
Nina T on Aug 27, 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!
Are all of your grape vines non-gmo?
Rshersto on May 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Stark Bro???s does not knowingly grow or offer genetically engineered plants or trees. We either graft our trees or grow them from cuttings.

Do you use neonicotinoids?
We prefer to use more earth friendly, softer chemicals like biological fungicides and insecticides, horticultural oil, insecticidal soap, and insect growth regulators.

Is this organic?
We raise our trees and plants as organically as we can. We do spray when necessary - primarily with biological/organic agents - to keep pests and diseases at bay in order to save a threatened crop, but you may raise the tree or plant as organically as you wish. Stark Bro???s does not knowingly grow or offer genetically engineered plants or trees (GMOs).
what size are these grape vines?
jaimec on May 5, 2019
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
