good for jelly ?
chuck on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure... We eat them fresh. Hard to beat seedless concords for any type of jelly/jams! Concords have slip skins so they are easy with perserves. Hope i helped. I did buy my seedless concords from stark bros and they are very hardy. Would recommend staying away from SEEDED grapes if you can.
the joy grape is it resistant to disease ?
chuck on Jun 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Joy is moderately resistant to powdery mildew, downy mildew and anthrancnose, but susceptible to black rot. Fungal diseases can easily be controlled with fungicides.

Would you recommend cane or spur pruning for this grape? Thank you. D on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Cane pruning of American bunch grapes may reduce disease pressure by removing almost all the old wood each winter, but you can prune either way.

Great grape vines
I set out the grape vine and it grew and grew. Once it gets old enough it will make wonderful tasting grapes.

Keep up the great work.
