Organic Grape Crop Varieties

Select grapes (Vitis) that are suitable for your climate and intended use so they can be grown naturally. All are self-pollinating, so a single plant is sufficient. Your chances of producing better crops, however, will be greatly increased if you plant two or more vines.
