Vitis lambrusca x vinifera 'Buffalo'
Buffalo, a productive, Concord-type grape, is a great choice for making juice and for eating fresh from the vine. Large clusters of reddish black, slipskin grapes with exceptional aroma and flavor are ready at least a week before Concord. The juicy sweet, melting flesh makes this cultivar a distinguished addition to any grower's collection! This vigorous American hybrid is easy to grow in much of the nation, but not cool summer regions. Grows in USDA Zone 5-9. Ripens in Sept/Oct.
A grapevine can be both a highly productive source of fruit and a focal point of considerable beauty. Think carefully about where to plant one to provide shade, cover a wall or accentuate an arch. We offer grapes most of which will ripen even in areas with cool summers. The ripening dates listed are for the cooler parts of Western Washington, but most ripen sooner and thrive where summers are warmer.
