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.

- 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?
