Reliance and Price Grapes


The Reliance and Price grapes are outstanding varieties for the home garden. These are disease resistant grapes.

Reliance Grape

This is a very top quality hardy seedless variety that has become a favorite. It is hardy to zone three. This red seedless was bred by Dr. James N. Moore at the University of Arkansas. Made available in 1982, it is a fox grape type. It is very adapted to most regions, including the Midwest. It is very disease resistant although it does experience some black rot. This vigorous plant bears lots of fruits. Frost isn’t a problem as the plant blooms late.

These fruits are red or reddish-pink. Grown commercially, these are a popular table grape. They’re also used for fresh fruit salads as well as for jelly and juice.

They ripen very early usually in August before the Concord. The medium sized fruits can be stored for three months, depending on the storage conditions. These round grapes are tender, melting, sweet, juicy, yet firm. They’re loaded with flavor, and are very sweet with a rich wine-like or strawberry taste. These are borne in large, loose, compact clusters.


The Price Grape

Bred by Lon Rombough, this is hardy to zone six. It does well in climates with cool summers, such as the Pacific Northwest and parts of Washington. The fruits will have plenty of time to ripen in cooler areas. The vigorous plants are disease resistant and bear lots of fruits.

This is a blue-black Concord type grape with a taste like the Concord. It is used as a table grape and for juice. These ripen very early before the Interlaken Seedless and three weeks before the Concord. They’re medium sized grapes with a tender skin and tender flesh. They taste very sweet with no foxy flavor. These grapes are borne in medium to small clusters.



Suffolk Red Seedless Grape

Introduced in 1972, this is considered an outstanding premium quality table grape. It is hardy to zone six. The vigorous plants are disease resistant. They bear lots of fruits. These ripen early, usually in September several weeks before the Concord. These are large, round, vivid red grapes. The crisp, juicy flesh is firm and meaty. They have a sweet, spicy, delicious flavor with just a touch of foxiness. These are borne in large to medium sized long clusters.
