White Grape Seedless

vitis viifera lakemount

‘Vitis Lakemont’ is a white seedless grape suitable as a table grape as well as a wine grape. Table grape means when the fruit is suitable for fresh consumption. It is a climbing plant that can grow several metres high. You can guide it yourself into all sorts of shapes and keep it very compact by good pruning. You can lead the grape well along a pergola or with guy wires on the wall. The grape first produces inconspicuous clusters of flowers in July-August, after which the grape bunches will form. The fruits are green-yellow in colour, juicy with a sweet taste. You can eat them directly or use them for jam, juice or making wine. The grape plant needs a lot of sun to ripen and likes warmth so a south-facing spot is ideal. The grapes can be harvested from mid-September onwards. The soil should be well-drained, nutritious and preferably not too acidic, rather calcareous. Pruning increases the fruit yield and the plant also looks neater. It is best to prune the plant between November and February, but not during hard frosts. Then prune away superfluous side and main branches. This grape variety is hardy and can handle temperatures down to -20 degrees without any problems.
