Flame Red GrapesRed Flame Grape, Vitis vinifera, melts in your mouth! Firm, fully ripe grapes have a pleasant seedless taste with no tough skins. Produces an amazing 30+ clusters of fruit per vine. Planting Tip: In an area the is hot and sunny plant this grape on a trellis, arbor or fence. Works well as a fruit-bearing fence to enclose a kitchen garden. Each vine requires at least 8 hours of sunlight. The monsoon season is an ideal time to plant new grapes with time left to produce a grape harvest this year.
