My Hardiness Zone ?
The USDA hardiness zones offer a guide to varieties that will grow well in certain climates. Each zone corresponds to the minimum winter temperatures experienced in a given area. Make sure that your hardiness zone lies within the zone compatability range of this variety before ordering.

Size & Spacing

Mature Size

When your plant matures, it will be approximately 4 - 6' tall x 12" wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 6 - 8' apart to ensure room for growth.


This variety is self pollinating.

In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!

Good table grapes
Greg E on Jan 11, 2020
Planted Himrod as my white grape in my previous NE home vineyard but it didn't do well in my new southern vineyard - so I chose Lakemont as a suitable replacement - my research shows this has great flavor. I like to dry the white grapes as raisins and store for winter baking and snacking.

can you plant grape vines in containers?
Jean R on Jun 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Because the root systems on the grape vines that I am familiar with (Concord
and Lakemont) are so large and extensive, I think it would be difficult to do
so, but it may be possible. When I planted my grapes, I planted the roots
extending for about 2 feet in both directions (left and right) of the stem.
You may also have difficulty keeping the roots from freezing in winter,
if you plant in a container in a northern climate.
Will a traditional arbor work for growing grapes?
Daniel K on Feb 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have mine on a traditional grape arbor and it is doing well.
How old are the bare root grapes ?
Carol B on Feb 2, 2021
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.
Can I grow grapes in container?
Jose A on Mar 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can grow almost anything in a container! Be sure you can arrange a trellis for support and that the container is large enough to support the root system.
I'm having trouble finding Thompson grapes. Can you use the leaves in stuffed grape leaves? do the grapes taste like Thompson grapes?

Lakemont Seedless grapes
I live in middle Tennessee. I purchased and planted last year. Growing great this spring.

Growing like gangbusters
I planted this Lakemont Seedless last year along with a couple others from Stark Bros (Reliance and Concord Seedless) and a couple I got from Home Depot (a Black Monukka and a Flame seedless). This one grew quite a bit last year and this year has by far put on the most growth compared to all the others. It's also covered in baby bunches of grapes. While all the others are growing and doing fine, this one for some reason is the Secretariat in the Belmont of grapes this year, just leaving all the others waaaaay behind. I don't know why but no complaints from me. I can't wait to see how the grapes turn out if animals don't beat me to them.

Mixed review...
Mine was dead when it arrived. Planted it immediately, but it never came around. The strawberries were in great shape!

Just add water and manure
Fruit was small this year but my irrigation was likely not sufficient. Will see next year.

Wish i could give you an honest answer but this is the 2nd year for them being in the ground and there are no grapes to be found. Hopefully next year will be different.
