The Story

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, past a trellis or wall, and enjoy the visual appeal along with the edible appeal that grapes are commonly known for.

The Details

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.

How to Grow

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.
