RE: grapes- eatable ones

I agree with Jim that a good concord grape would work well in zone 5.  That
is what mom and dad always grew.  They established 2 vines on one arbor when
I was about 8 years old or so and the vines are still growing and producing.
Dad did nothing special to help them through winters.  The only maintenance
he had was pruning them back each year.  (Mom made so much grape jelly, it
isn't funny and I enjoyed them freshly rinsed and popped into my mouth.
(One learns to spit seeds if the grape is good enough.)  ;>D

Subject: [CHAT] grapes- eatable ones

Anyone know of a good eating variety of grapes that grows in zone 5?
Next spring, I would like to replace the ornamental grape vine on the fence
with something that would bare fruit. Suggestions?

A few years ago I planted Vitis coignetiae- I was supposed to get a fall
color change and be wonderful... HA!.... it is taking over it's space and
drowning out everything around. I could prune in the spring and make it
managable, but it goes from green to brown to dead leaves... no fall color
here ever! How disappointing. Decided that I don't have enough room for
plants that can't live up to their expectations... so it is out of here in
the spring.
