Villard Blanc Grape
vitis vinifera x lubrusa
Highly disease resistant wine grape. Good fresh eating, attractive ornamental vine. Grows from TX to NJ. One of the easiest grapes to prune since it's almost devoid of tendrils. Clusters up to 5 lbs. Space 8' to 10' on 2 wire trellis. May need sprays for black rot. The grape cluster photo included with this description was "bagged" the entire season before photo was taken. Grapes ripen late September 25th here at the nursery. Zones 7-9.
To bag grapes use a waxed sandwich bag, sold in natural food stores. Remove leaf atop the bunch,so once the cluster is in the bag the top of the bag can be folded and stapled. Bag early just after bloom. Choose 25 bunches and prune out the rest. This takes less time than weelky or bi-weekly spraying.
