I would like to plant red seedless grapes. What time of the year and what variety work in Utah.
Rate This FAQ
The grapes will do better if you plant them in the spring. Two of the red seedless table grapes that do well in Utah are:
Candice- it has well-filled clusters of medium-size berries. It is very productive and hardy. It also makes good raisins.
Suffolk Red- an early red seedless grape. Clusters tend to be loose and small. Flavor is excellent. It can be dried to make raisins.
These are not the only red grapes that will do here, but they are two varieties that are known to do well here.
You want grapes that do well in USDA Zone 5 (zone 3-4 would even be better because every few years we get a deeper freeze) and that like alkaline soil. You could check out catalogs like Stark Bros. or Miller Nurseries to read about the different varieties, or you can check with some of the reputable, full-serve nurseries in your area. I hope this information will be of help to you.

- In preparing my soil for vegetable gardening, I've added too much chemical fertilizer. I haven't planted anything yet. Is it too late to fix this?
- I purchased several pepper plants from a local nursery this spring one of them I do not know if the fruit is a pepper. They are black fruit about the size of a grape, full of seeds, and they do not smell hot, all the others are jalapeno.
- Are pine needles a good top mulch or addition to my compost pile? Others have said pine needles are poisonous. I live in Washington Terrace and my soil is sandy by nature.
- I have 4 lovely crenshaw melons on my home garden vines -- 1 large, 2 medium, and 1 small. None of them have gone yellow/white yet! We survived the snow flakes last weekend (I covered everything), but I see we are about to get another "hit" this weekend! Is there ANYthing I can do to speed up their ripening?? I have cut back my watering of the vines, but sprinklers still go on automatically in the morning. Would any of the "usual" things people do to ripen melons indoors (paper bags, put them with a banana, etc.) do any good while they are still on the vine?? From everything I have read, if they are picked while they are still green, they will never ripen -- is this true? If I keep them well covered during our few nights of 32-33 due this weekend, will they survive on the vine to ripen?

- I have had some raspberry plants in an area near my house (6' x 12') for over ten years and only in the spring do I try to gently loosen the soil with a gardening fork. I have not added anything other than some fruit oriented fertilizer or Miracle Grow in that time. Half of the section usually produces berries the size of the tip of your little finger and some grow as big as the tip of your thumb. The others are small and crumbly,which is okey of jam but not for visuals or overall production. I read that crumbliness is due to ovary infertility. How do I overcome that? Should I also be doing some thinning? Early this last spring I cut the canes to about three feet high but many of them are now close to eight feet long. What is the best way to deal with excess growth?
