Flame Seedless Grapes
Flame Seedless (complex parentage). Bred at the USDA station in Fresno, California. As grown in the NW, Flame's berries tend to be darker in color and the berries are smaller than the ones in the stores, unless treated with hormone or girdled. The vine is vigorous to a fault. I grow mine completely without watering it and I still get canes 20 feet long. More resistant to cracking than other vinifera grapes, at least partly due to the open clusters, which dry off quickly after rain. Prune to spurs, and give it at least 10 feet between vines.
