 o
Is This Grape?

This is a volunteer in my yard. It looks more like a bush, right now, but when it finds something to climb on, it is definitely a climber. Most years I cut it back, but I've always kind of wondered if it's a grape. If so, how many years from seed to fruit?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Could be grape, but also compare with porcelainberry, ampelopsis brevipedunculata.

Hmm. More options. Here's a closer picture of one of the full grown leaves. Maybe that will help someone.

It's not porcelain berry. I have a porcelain berry plant.

Possum grape?

I'd rather it be possum grape than porcelain berry. But I'm not sure that's enough to make it so. =P

Anyone else have any ideas?

Looks like a Chardonnay vine to me. We planted a dozen last year, and that's what they look like.

Cool cool. I'd actually be happy with any kind of grape.
