The Van Buren is a seeded purple to black Concord type grape. It is a sweet grape that is good for fresh eating, jams/jellies, juice and wine. It ripens 3-4 weeks earlier than the Concord. In the Pacific Northwest it ripens in mid to late August. It is very hardy, easy to grow and cold resistant.
There’s nothing quite like homegrown grapes on a warm summer day. Their sweetness and burst of flavor are unmatched! Grape vines are an attractive addition to any garden and can be trained to grow up arbors and around fences where they can create a living barrier or enclosed space.
We grow several different types of grapes including table grapes, seedless grapes and the ever-popular concord grapes.
