I heard it through the grapevine, that Mars grapes can live for over 50 years in your gardens; I think we are all ready for this jelly!
Grapes, prized for their fruit, surprisingly have ornamental value in the home garden. If not just growing for the fruits, interest can be held with the flowers and foliage that springs up and around the delectable edibles. Summer and fall foliage can be bold and colorful, while the winter shows off the twisting, turning trunks and branches that spread out to hold grapes year after year. Take the time to notice the beauty in a grape plant the next time you pass under an arbor, trellis or wall, and enjoy the visual appeal along with the edible appeal that grapes are commonly known for.
How to use Mars Seedless Grape in the landscape?
Hot summer days have never looked so good! Mars Seedless Grape loves and thrives growing on hot summer days. This seedless grape is a vigorous grower that produces high yields of medium-sized slip-skin grapes. Slip skin grapes are grapes whose skin easily peels from the flesh, making these grapes great for making wine. The flavor of Mars grapes is similar to that of Concord. However, Mars ripens in late September, early October.
Hardiness Zone: 5-8
How To Plant Mars Seedless Grape
Mars will thrive in soil that is rich in humus, loamy, well-draining with average moisture levels. This grape can tolerate various types of garden soils as long as the soil has good drainage. When planting, you will want to make sure that Mars is not located in a frost pocket or an area that is unprotected from damaging winter winds. This self-pollinating variety can handle harsh weather if located in the Eastern to the Midwestern US. Mars will need special care in terms of training on a trellis, regular pruning sessions, and regular spraying sessions to achieve the highest yields possible.
How To Water
Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
Pruning on your Grape should occur during winter.
