The best grapes for Connecticut are winter-hardy. American cultivars (Vitis lambrusca) and French hybrid types (crosses between V. lambrusca and V. vinifera) are recommended.
Cultivars can be selected based on grape color, size, flavor, end use, ripening time and vine disease resistance. Some popular table grape varieties include Concord, Lakemont, Reliance, Interlaken, Canadice and Himrod. Wine grape cultivars suggested for Connecticut are Cayuga white, Niagara, Baco noir and Marechal Foch.
