Grape Alden Clusters

Alden Grape

Vitus lubrusca hybrid

Alden is a deep blue Concord colored grape with California grape characteristics. The fruit's meaty non-slipskin texture is similar to vinifera grapes and the flavor is excellent. Joe Volk from PA (North American Fruit Explorers) felt strongly that Alden should be a part of our offerings. Usually needs spraying for black rot (at least one)or bagging of the clusters. Among the largest size grapes of the American varieties ripening a few weeks before Concord. Primarily used for fresh eating. Pruning is usually close, leaving about half the buds than a pruned Concord. Zone 5-7 Space @ 6' apart on 6' tall trellis.
