Store grape boxes immediately in refrigeration when received. The ideal condition for grapes is 30 – 32 F with 90 – 95 percent relative humidity.

They're easy to grow.

How often do you water a grape vine?

Newly Planted Grapes

How do I identify a grape vine?

First, all grape plants have heart-shaped leaves. There may be three or five lobes on the leaves depending on the variety, and the edges may be smooth or jagged. However, that tell-tale heart-shape is always present. Next, these vines will have tendrils that help the plant climb higher and higher toward the sun.

Do foxes eat grapes?

It's not impossible for a fox to eat grapes, though in large quantities they are toxic to canids, and it wouldn't be a good idea. But while foxes are omnivorous, they much prefer meat (including bugs), and would not particularly be tempted to eat grapes.
