25 Seeds Riverbank Grape (Vitis riparia) Fruit Vine description and characteristics:
Growing Info: Scarification: Soak in water, let stand in water for 24 hours. Stratification: cold stratify for 180 days. Germination: sow seed 1/4" deep, tamp the soil, mulch the seed bed. Other: fall sowing in mulched beds is prefered to artificial stratification.
Mature vines have loose, fissured bark , and may attain several inches in diameter. Leaves are alternate, often with opposite tendrils or inflorescences, coarsely toothed, 5-25 cm (2-10in) long and 5-20 cm (2-8in) broad, sometimes with sparse hairs on the underside of veins.
The inflorescence is paniculate 4-15 cm (1.5-6 in) long and loose, and the flowers are small, fragrant, dioecious , and white or greenish in color. V. riparia blooms in May or June and produces a small 6-15 mm blue-black berry ( grape ) with a bloom, seeded, juicy, edible, vinous in flavor, lacking the "foxy" characteristics of Vitis labrusca , but usually quite sour and herbaceous.
V. riparia has a wide range and may deviate considerably in detail from the above general description. White berries , perfect flowers, large clusters, large berries, and sweet fruit are among the known variations. However, some observers consider such variations as evidence of natural hybridization with other species of grapes.
