The Newest Addition

We added a new plant to the garden last weekend- a St. Croix Grape. This vine is planted on the trellace where one of the Japanese Honeysuckle did not come back from last year.

St. Croix Grape is a blue-fruited, hardy variety that was developed here in Minnesota. It produces clusters of medium sized grapes that ripen in early to mid-september. This variety is good for wine, as a fresh-eating table grape, as well as for making preserves.
I am excited to give them a try! Who knows, maybe I'll be doing this next year! ;) Cheers!
