Post Champagne Grapes (those neato little ones - 'Spritely')
I would like to locate a good source (hopefully a Member here) for the small Champagne Grapes. They come in more than one type and are good for fresh eating.

Last time I saw them growing in the ground was at a CRFG Member's collection in San Diego. Last time I saw a bunch of them for sale was (believe it or not...) a Walmart in Grenada Mississippi in the specialty area for about $3 a pound.

There are lots of things I hope to find. We finally have a yard to plant in here in SE Portland. Good rooted cuttings of Blueberries are also high on the list. Figs are a must - and did very well for us in black buckets 1/2 planted on the south side of the house in San Diego... I look forward to meeting the membership and am joining.

:)

Ricky,

Black Corinth or Champagne grapes are difficult to grow in OR because they are very susceptible to powdery mildew.

Figs (Desert King and Brown Turkey)do well here.

We can grow a lot of different types of fruits in Western Oregon, but you can't compare San Diego to Portland at all.

CRFG offers a lot more exotic stuff that can't be grown in our climate.
