Do these vines produce the first year? Thank you
Liz A on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it usually takes 3 years for a grape vine to start producing. I usually let
the vine grow the first year. The second year I start training it on a trellis
pruning off all except a couple of main vines. By the third year those main vines should start to produce.
My LaCrosse grapes are at 2.9 pH and 18 brix, should I harvest ?
Brian H on Sep 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: In my opinion it???s close enough. The pH is more important than the Brix at this point. Don???t let the pH go over 3.3.
Are these seeded or seedless grapes?
Jen G on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: LaCrosse is a seeded variety.

Healthy Plants
I bought four Lacrosse grape plants for delivery in March of 2015. Now, nearly 18 months later, I couldn't be happier with their progress. All of them survived a particularly harsh winter (in the mountains of West Virginia) and have put on some impressive growth this year. One of the plants even put out a few bunches of grapes this year. I removed all but one bunch, to encourage plant growth, but I am anxious to see how well the remaining one develops.

La crosse grapes
2nd year and both vines are doing well. Hope to have grapes next year. Watch the Japanese beetles, they really eat the leaves.

It came back!
I have tried grapes from garden centers and after the first season, none came back. Even though they were planted in the correct hardiness zone. I have a cold northern wind a good part of the winter. Yet, this Lacrosse grape has come back and is leafing out exuberantly. I live in Colorado, ostensibly in zone 5, but I plant as if it is 3-4.

The vines grew very well and should produce this year for the first time. They seem very hardy for our harsh winters.I am very satisified with the plants.

LoCrosse Grape
The Grape vines did well the first year, however during the winter the rabbits chewed off the one of the vines leaving only two buds, it did take off this spring and is now 12 feet tall, the other vine how ever was chewed down to where there were no buds and died. No grapes, however I am happy that one survived.

Still alive!
Can't really give any type of review other to say the plant is still alive. Plant is too small to bear fruit for another year or 2.
