I bought a dozen 1 year old table grape vines from Peaceful Valley Farms last year (a real deal at just $5 a vine). Last year they didn’t do much. I let them run wild and get established. This past winter I pruned and trellised them and have tried to keep them trained on the trellis. Looks like the work is paying off. This is a bunch of Perlette table grapes. I’ve also got Concord and Black Monukka clusters ripening away. Can’t wait to try them.
Next year I’m going to see about investing in some wine grape stock. A friend of mine from Israel says there’s several varieties grown around the Mediterranean region that would probably do very well here in San Diego County.
