I chose this grape for its compact size. It should be just right for fresh snacking.

What size container would you plant this in? I am thinking a 5 gallon would work.
Donna B on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, a 5-gallon container would work just fine.
What type of winter protection required?
Donna on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the severity of your winters. I planted mine in containers and bring in over winter. I have a room off my dining room with windows on three sides. I call this my plant room. All container weather sensitive plants over winter here with a circulating heater/ fan. For mild winters do nothing. For intermediate winters cover with leaves or burlap.
How long will bear fruit on pixie grapes?
Debra C on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you are asking how long it takes to bear, the answer is one year. If you are asking how long the vine will bear fruit, much will depend upon its care and feeding. Grape vines can last for many decades.

Awesome little grape
Bought this last year and it was perfect. Stayed small like I needed, thrives in a pot, and this year has woken up with several spires of flower buds developing. Extremely happy with this plant and company

Easy care
I purchased this pixie grape in 2016. I love grapes but do not have room for them. The vine went directly into the ground and it over-wintered very well. It started leafing out about a month ago and I notice the tiniest little bunches forming. I am very pleased with my pixie!
