|Grow climbing grapes for the sweet juicy fruit, or on a trellis or arbor. The many varieties offer fruit for eating right off the vine, for wine, or for jam and jellies. Their woody vines climb through or over other plants to reach the light, and their large leaves can cover a wall, form a great screen, or offer overhead summer shade. There are two types of grapes -- European, with a winelike flavor, and American, with a Concord flavor. Growing conditions vary for each type of grape. Some tolerate alkaline or clay soil. Some are fast growing, while others take their time. Prune all types regularly. Some are not frost hardy. European grapes need long seasons of warm weather. In colder climates, American grapes do best. They are also immune to the mildew that attacks European varieties.
Sweet, black fruits are the prize of this somewhat shrubby, low-growing vine. The leaves are 2 to 4 inches long.
