Description

The Catawba is a purple-red seedless grape that originally came from America. It is popular for making juice (frozen juice makes awesome ice lollies), wine and preserves. The Catawba Grape produces a small thicker skin grape and leaves are green and a little leathery on top with soft, white, velvety hairs on the underside.

This hardy vine should be planted in full sun (at least 6 hours of sunshine a day) and can handle the heat and cold rather well. So, plant it to grow over a pergola, and you can count on having a shady spot all summer. It will also grow along strong fences and trellises, but it definitely needs some support. Plant vines about 1.8 to 3 metres apart from one another. It thrives in well-draining soil that is deep, so that its roots can extend far down and take in more nutrients. A slightly acidic pH of 5.0 to 6.5 is best, but this plant is resilient enough to withstand most soil types. The only exceptions are soils that are wet or alkaline.When your vine is new, water it gently and gradually twice a week. Thereafter, about 2.5 centimetres of water per week should be ample. Don’t overwater your vine.
