Thompson Seedless Grape Plant A vigorous deciduous vine with bold-textured, deep green foliage, grown for its large bunches of classic, small, sweet, mild-flavored, green grapes. A good mid-season table grape. This vigorous, twining vine works well as a screen for arbors or trailing along fences. Easily grown in deep, loamy, humus-rich, well-drained soil, but quite adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with an organic fertilizer from spring to midsummer. Provide sturdy trellis or arbor support. Prune annually to control size. Botanical Pronunciation Vee-tiss vih-NIFF-er-ah
Lore The grape was a primarily agricultural crop of the Romans who refined the art of wine making by collecting cultivars from its Empire to develop improved vineyard varieties.
Average Size at Maturity Fast growing vine; grows 20 to 25 ft. each year.
Bloom Time Inconspicuous; prized for fruit and foliage.
Design Ideas Grow this grape over a shade arbor and let the fruit dangle. Drape over an arbor gate and along the top of fences to provide plenty of sunlight. Create wire and post grape vine treillage in the vineyard style for a larger plant and crop.
