WS grape seeds questions

I wintersowed some Red Globe seeds and got good germination. Now I'm wondering how to handle the seedlings and about how many years I will need to wait to get my first grapes???? Has anyone grown these before? Or some other sort of grapes?

Same questions I am wondering about. I just have purple and green grape seeds.
The green ones have sprouted but only a few so far.

RE: WS grape seeds questions

PD, your zone is colder than mine and these have only come up a couple days ago so probably more of yours will show soon.
still hope for more info but I'm excited to have the chance to experiment with these.

RE: WS grape seeds questions

There's a good book on growing grapes called "From Vines to Wines" by Jeff Cox. It's very thorough, and the trellising process was fascinating.

Where did you get your seeds? Are they just common green grapes or red from the store or a special variety that you ordered somewhere?


RE: WS grape seeds questions

I got them off ebay.
Found some info
"Grape vines take up to three years to start producing fruit. "
Another site says if your lucky within two years.
