Garden Help Desk: Jupiter and Marquis grapes are vine alternatives



PROVO, Utah – Question: Which table grapes are the preferred varieties for this area? I know Himrod and Canadice seem to be the most common green and red varieties at the local nurseries. I heard there was a grape trial going on. Did that or anything else point to any additional types. Any black varieties do well in this area?

Answer: One of Utah County’s USU Extension Associate Professors of Horticulture is conducting a grape cultivar trial at Thanksgiving Point. You ‘ve mentioned Canadice and Himrod, so I assume you’re interested in seedless table grapes. There are several table grape cultivars being evaluated in the trial, including the popular varieties Canadice and Himrod, plus some you probably haven’t heard of.
