    Grapes: ?????????

    Mon Sep 24, 2012 10:06 pm Groupie
    The neighbor behind me asked if my grapes were sweet.. I said, what grapes? He points up and I see an ENORMOUS AMOUNT of tiny black grapes all tangled up high in my byard crabapple. He says they'll soon kill my crabapple (ah, darn, she's a pain w/those rock hard, unable to eat fruits!)

    I tasted one, blech! Like the skin on an American Persimmon !! But, therre are TONS, totally black.

    What variety are they, how do I get them bigger and sweet for next year????

    They are NOT grapes. That's Virginia Creeper, which is in the ivy family. Many people mistake it for poison ivy, which has a different number of leaves. It's not food for humans, but birds love the fruit and will leave purple poop all over. That's how the stuff got there in the first place, bird poop. It's VERY invasive, almost as bad as kudzu, so you'll have to keep it under control. It will kill your tree if it's growing in it. The sap can give you a rash. It will turn a gorgeous crimson in the fall.

    NEVER eat anything wild unless you know what it is!!!
