Crop Profile: Grapes

Grapes might be the most common perennial fruiting vines, but we often relegate them to the orchard or vineyard and forget what attractive plants they can be. Gracing a pergola, their hearty growth rate provides quick shade. Plus, the ripening fruits dangle from above for easy harvesting. The downside to this setup is their tendency to draw wasps as the fruits mature, leaving the seating area beneath them unusable for a few weeks in late summer.

Get a book that offers step-by-step pruning instructions. “It’s not a hard process once you gain experience but getting the hang of it may take some hands-on work,” she adds. “Don’t worry, it’s hard to go wrong with pruning. Most fruiting vines, rather t...
