re: variety of grapes

Asked January 28, 2016, 1:14 PM EST

hi, I planted my grape vine about 20 years ago. I was busy, and had small children, so i didnt pay attention to the attached tag which said the name of the variety. They are sweet with a slight tartness, small, light green grapes. Is there any way to find out what variety it is, so I can read up more about it? Also, what can I do with the grape leaves? I have heard that tea can be made from just putting the new leaves into hot water, is that true? thanks in advance for your help.

Hard to say from the information you have provided. Is it seedless?
Here's a reference about table grape varieties for new york:

Regarding tea: I don't think there is any harm in trying, but I've never heard about grape leaves being used to make tea.
