About This Plant
Sun or shade. Deciduous. Grapevine climbs prodigiously over shrubs and up into trees, often shading them completely. The grapes ripen to dark purple in August and September.
Mustang grapes are usually bitter, with a skin containing high tannin levels, but if picked at the right time they can be used for homemade wine and jellies.
Expect some effort to contain; prune as needed. Mustang grape can be trained to trellises and fences, and will often climb them anyway.
