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. https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/ec1639.pdf 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.
