The Q&A Archives: Grapes-different Varieties

Question: We have a wonderful arbor full of concord grapes. There's room for more plantings-I'm wondering if I can plant different varieties together and not worry about cross-pollination.

Answer: With the exception of muscadines, most grapes are self-fruitful and will not need a pollinator. They will not cross-pollinate. You might try growing Scuppernong, Higgins, Fredonia or Blue Lake in your southern garden.
