We’ve got grapes!

We have a variety of grapes planted in the southeastern portion of the orchard, all reflective of grapes grown in Puget Sound when Piper’s Orchard was originally planted in the 1890’s. I found grapes on 4 of the plants. The Niagara were nice and sweet. The Gewurztraminer and Catawba grapes were not yet ripe. The Concord Seedless had some still ripening and some already turned into tasty grapes. Come check out the harvest during the Festival of Fruit on Saturday, September 24th. Thanks to Andy Zaborski for all his efforts locating, planting and maintaining the grapes. Perhaps next year we’ll have an arbor for the vines.
