Grape removal

kittymoonbeamMarch 26, 2013

I got a beautiful wine grape that was brought from Romania and looks like it should be in old master paintings. It tastes good too but there was a green seedless grape that got planted with it ( the person who gave it to me thought they were both the burgundy-purple wine grape) The green grape is more aggressive and was out growing the purple grape. I cut it to a short stub. Is there any way to get rid of the green grape without harming the purple one? Will constantly removing the new foliage do it?

Try grafting the purple onto the green.

Grafting is a good idea but not the easiest to do. If you keep all leaves removed you can probably starve it out in a couple years. If not too big I'd just dig it out. It won't regrow from the roots.

It's funny that the man who bought the house from his friend ( both from Romania) now wanted to get rid of the stuff from the "Old Country". He is replacing everything with Citrus along with palm trees which he associates with So. CA. His wife has little European statuary all over to make it a mini Beverly Hills. I just love the grape and even if it didn't taste good, I would keep it for its beauty. When I did some searching I found pictures of Transylvania farmlands that looked like they could be back in time. What beautiful countryside that is!

Here is a link that might be useful:

I have traveled throughout Romania. The countryside is gorgeous, but most cities are gawd awful ugly (thanks communism). My favorite region was the Carpathian mountains (attached).
