‘Reliance’ is a self-pollinating, seedless American grape hybrid. It is a woody, deciduous, climbing vine, typically growing 15 to 20′ long unless pruned. Large, shallow-cut, three-lobed, green foliage is tropical-like. Panicles of fragrant, greenish flowers appear in Spring, followed by clusters of pinkish red, mild, sweet, fruity flavored seedless grapes. Fruits appear in early mid-season. Considered an excellent all purpose grape – juices, jams, jellies and raisins. Best fruiting in full sun, in well drained soil, but tolerates light shade & heavier soils. Good drainage is a must, and protection from harsh winds.
Relatively wildlife tolerant after establishment.
Very pollinator & wildlife friendly.
