Grape ‘Lakemont’ Seedless

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit!

The ‘Lakemont’ Seedless Grapes are delicious eaten fresh and have a very honey-like taste. This variety produces an extremely heavy crop with large bunches of medium-sized fruits that mature to a golden yellow color and have a sweet flavor. This grape is very winter hardy!

‘Lakemont’ is a white table grape and part of the “Three Sisters” group, consisting of ‘Himrod’, ‘Lakemont’, and ‘Interlaken’. All are named after cities in the Great Lakes region of North America. ‘Lakemont’ ripens later than the other two “sisters”, but it is sweeter, has bigger fruit, and has a slightly different flavor. Some nurseries claim that ‘Lakemont’ is more productive than both ‘Himrod’ and ‘Interlaken’.

The vines are allowed to run as they will the first year and the posting or staking is done the second or third year when you will prune heavily, leaving only 2 or 3 buds on the strongest stem. As it grows, you’ll keep only the most vigorous sprout to form the main stem. Shallow cultivation and mulching are beneficial.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the roots meet the stem) is about 1-2" below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Fertilize when planting. Best grown in deep, loamy, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, including average garden soils, but must have good drainage. Best sited in a location sheltered from winter winds (preferably a southern facing slope) and well removed from frost pockets. Self-pollinating. Grapes need a support system, training, regular spraying and regular pruning to maximize fruit production.

Pests or Diseases: Grape plants require a fair amount of maintenance and pruning. If given the proper amount of care, these wonderful fruits will provide you and your family with years of pleasure.
