Keep or kill?

Asked June 7, 2018, 2:40 PM EDT

I have this plant in my back yard and I’m not sure what it is. If it’s invasive or more of a weed, then I’ll get rid of it. But if it’s worth keeping (fruit bearing) then I might give it a pardon.

The photo is of a grape vine. Since there is only one planted I am assuming it is a table grape, hopefully one you will enjoy the taste of. Here is the link to an Oregon State University Extension publication that discusses how to grow table grapes. Grape vines can get quite large if not pruned properly so in that sense I guess it could become invasive to the space allotted for it to grow. The publication discusses pruning and training of grape vines.
