Phoenix Grape Vine Options

Option 1 : 30cm-45cm tall. The seasons slow starters.
Option 2 : 60-150cm tall. The best the season has to offer.
Option 3 : 150-200cm tall. Usually a season older than Option 1 and 2.

The Phoenix outdoor grape produces a large densely packed berry that give a fine Muscat aroma from the heavy crop it produces. Large leaves and great Autumn colour also makes it useful for decorative use in the garden. Compared to other grapes it is considered quite hardy meaning it will tolerate the cold better than other grapes.

Phoenix grapes are popular with wine makers, juicers and those wanting to eat as dessert grape. Organic gardeners like the Phoenix grape because it has high disease resistance and therefore much less need for chemicals.

The grapes turn yellow and ripen in early October. You can always test ripeness by giving a few berries to the neighbours kids and if they don't pull a "suck face" then you are probably very close or spot on to ripeness.

Originally bred in Germany in the 1960's so the Phoenix is probably is a good place to ask engineering advice if ever you learn to speak grape. Its parentage is Bacchus x Villard Blanc.

The characteristics of the Phoenix make it particularly suitable for the UK climate and will grow in most soils except waterlogged, submarine window boxes, active army ranges and my ex-wife's garden (she sucks the life out of everything).

Expect an untrained Phoenix grape vine to reach around 6m tall.

General Vine Information

During the dormant season (November to March) most vines do a very good impression of looking dead. We don't mean they have arranged their own memorial and headstone but that the branches look very dry and beyond sprouting new growth. This is normal but if you absolutely must know right now, today and this instant then scratch a little bark off. If it is green underneath then the grape vine is still alive. 

All vines are at least 2 years old and grafted onto a root stock that will be 3 years old. This is to improve vigour (growth and fruit production). The vines are pruned back several times a year and can easily grow 1m (3ft) in a season. They might fruit in the first year, local conditions allowing, certainly the second. 

Bred to be Phylloxera resistant.

Vines will last 100's of years if looked after and outdoor vines can be successfully grown outdoors as far North as Yorkshire (depending on weather conditions).Indoor grapes have been grown in a Greenhouse in Aberdeenshire.

Give them as much sun as possible, keep ventilated and humidity down. This applies to indoor and outdoor grapes.

Despite your best efforts, you will most likely encounter a Grape vine issue at some point, especially with global warming giving us wetter summers. As little as a week of continued warm and wet weather is enough for those little fungus "bar-stewards" to get in and wreak havoc.  The three you are most likely to encounter are downy mildew, powdery mildew, and grey mould. 

Your best action is preventative. Keep the site moisture levels down. Water the base, not the leaves. Keep the leaves spread out to allow light and air in to dry them out. Vines under glass need to be well ventilated. Consider heating the greenhouse for long periods of cloudy weather to keep humidity down.

If you do get it, remove the affected leaves and destroy.

Freezing Grapes
With temperatures going through the roof, cool and healthy Summer snacks will be in demand. First, remove grapes from the stem, place in a colander and rinse off. Dry the grapes and place on a baking tray covered in wax paper. Place in the freezer and when solid put into a plastic sealed bag ready for next years sweat-fest.
