Huge Thugs-Self hybridizing wine/native grapes

floreyDecember 12, 2008

New giant grape vines, are now covering, and even toppling, trees, like kudzu. They appear fairly suddenly, in more states than mapped by trackers. This is true in CT.

There is new research that points to complex origens

This is going to need some new thought on controls.

Here is a link that might be useful: Hybrid thug grape research

I hadn't heard about this. Your link mentions Spain. Got pictures? They have a ways to go before they can claim Kudzu-like status.
