Carlos is a self-fertile grapevine with bronze, medium-size fruit borne in small clusters that ripen early to mid-season; very vigorous vines; good disease resistance and cold hardiness; good flavor; high yields.

Grapevines grow best in full sunshine, in well draining soils. Early spring is the best time to plant grapevines. During the first year, the vines are normally tied to a stake to keep them off the ground, prevent damage. If the season of planting is dry, supplemental watering is also necessary to keep the vines growing. It is important to get as much first-year growth as possible.

As the grapevines grow, annual pruning will help keep the vines from tangling up. There are many books available about grape pruning, so check your local library.
