Dormant cutting without roots. Will require rooting.


Cloeta is an American hybrid grape. Per Munson's notes: "Parentage, America crossed with R.W. Munson. Cluster large, berry large, black, handsome; skin thin, handles well; pulp tender, juicy, sprightly, far better quality than Concord. Vine very vigorous and prolific. Uses: market, table, red wine. Medium late, just after Concord. Ten to fourteen feet, long pruning. Ripens July 10th to 15th at Denison, Texas. Probably the best of all American black grapes."

 

Mad Cat Farm maintains a collection of T.V. Munson grape varieties, which we believe are important for modern organic and "no-spray" growers wanting to produce backyard grapes without chemicals. Munson grapes were bred with the humid temperate regions of the United States in mind, namely the South and Midwest, which typically cannot grow grapes well.

 

Thomas Volney Munson was a vitivculturalist, horticulturist and breeder of grapes in Texas in the late 1800s who developed some 300 varieties of grapes. Many of these varieties are no longer in existence or are no longer available to the public. 

 

Cuttings are 8-10" long with 2-3 nodes per cutting.
