best grape vine variety

Asked January 18, 2018, 9:03 PM EST

I have a huge pergola 10 by 30 by 10 ft. tall. I want vigor, cold hardy, and for eating fresh off the vine. I want something that grows lots of foliage. We designed the pergola after the one at the landscape arboretum. thank you

We have a large selection of grapevines that are hardy here. However, they do need care. All have similar amount of foliage. You may wish to plant more than one variety. I strongly suggest that you read all the way through this publication paying attention to the care needed. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/fruit/growing-grapes-for-home-use/
