Catawba Red Grape (Vitis labrusca 'Catawba') is a delightful grape cultivar renowned for its rich flavor and versatility. This vigorous deciduous vine is cherished by both amateur and seasoned grape growers for its striking clusters of plump, red grapes that are ideal for table consumption, juice, or winemaking.

Catawba grapes are characterized by heart-shaped leaves with serrated edges, providing an attractive backdrop to the bountiful clusters of grapes they produce.

The grapes themselves are a striking crimson color when fully ripe, showcasing the vine's vibrant and attractive fruit. They are medium-sized, round, and boast a sweet and slightly musky flavor with a hint of tartness, making them a favorite for various culinary uses.

The Catawba is known for its robust growth, reaching heights of 15 to 20 feet when mature. Its expansive nature makes it suitable for arbors, trellises, or other sturdy supports.

It typically ripens in late summer to early fall, providing a late-season harvest. The vines generally start bearing fruit within 2 to 3 years after planting.

The Catawba is a self-pollinating vine, meaning it does not require a separate pollinator for fruit set.

It thrives in USDA Hardiness Zones 5 to 8, making it well-suited for a range of climates, including both temperate and subtropical regions.
