Germination of

Vitis spp.

Green Table Grapes: Vitis vinifera, Green Seedless Grapes, Thompson Seedless

Vitis spp.

Vitis spp.: Grapes prefer well-draining soil in full sun. Seeds can be sown in the spring after a cold stratification period or can be planted directly in the fall. Germination can take several weeks to several months.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
