Vitis labrusca x vinifera 'Reliance'
Ripening about a month earlier than Concord, Reliance is a very sweet, crunchy, pink/red grape. It is an American hybrid non-slipskin table grape with good winter hardiness, developed by the University of Arkansas. When grown in warmer areas, it may contain small seeds. Fruit is prone to crack in wet ripening weather. Spur prune. To Zone 5.
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.
