‘Lidi’ Grape - Fruit shrub - Climbing plants

Vitis vinifera 'Lidi'
‘Lidi’ Grape - Fruit shrub

Rote Trauben aus dem eigenen Boden

Große Rispen mit saftigen roten Trauben. Wir lieben sie! Mit der ‚Lidi‘-Traube im Anzuchttopf bauen wir im Garten frische rote Trauben an. Oder in Töpfen auf der (Dach-)Terrasse oder dem Balkon. Der Obststrauch ist im Blumentopf frostempfindlicher. Dann wickeln wir den Topf mit Luftpolsterfolie ein. Die rote Traube braucht Halt beim Wachsen. Deshalb pflanzen wir die Pflanze an eine Wand, eine Hecke oder einen Zaun. Der Obststrauch blüht im Sommer mit unauffälligen Blumenrispen. Im zweiten Jahr nach dem Pflanzen können wir ab Ende des Sommers mit der Ernte beginnen. Trauben wachsen in gut durchlässigen Böden. In trockenen Zeiträumen gießen wir mehr. Für ein gutes Wachstum ist ausreichend Licht erforderlich. Wir pflanzen den Obststrauch daher in der (halb-)vollen Sonne.

Harvesting Details
  • Planting
  • Make sure the root ball of Vitis vinifera ‘Lidi’ is moistened well by soaking in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a large hole in humus-rich, well-drained soil. Loosen the soil and plant the grape at the right height. The top of the root ball should be slightly below ground level. Don’t plant it too deep (no deeper than the graft). When planted, fill the hole with soil and press firmly with your feet so that there is a slight depression at the base. Water immediately after planting. Vittis vivifera ‘Lidi’ grows best in a sunny spot. Plant the grape vines at a distance of 150-200 cm apart. It is also possible to grow them in a greenhouse or conservatory. You can plant the grape in a large patio pot or planter, although yields will generally be lower.

  • Care
  • Grape vines need a support. It is recommended to grow them against a wall or a mesh fence to give support for the branches. When new growth begins, use a soft string and tie the strongest leading shoot upright to wires. Any other leaders can be cut flush with the stem. During the autumn, add a little lime to the soil and some mixed organic fertiliser in the spring. The soil should not be too wet but in times of drought it is advisable to water more often. If you want to cover your vines with netting to keep out the birds, attach the netting at the sides rather than throwing it over the plants.
    Pruning grapes
    If you prune properly you will benefit from a good harvest from your grape ‘Lidi’. Leave a shoot of a young plant to grow and tie it in. In the following years keep the plant at the desired height and train some of the side shoots horizontally. The vines should be thinned out each winter by shortening side growth to two dormant eyes (buds). In the spring retain the best growth from each pruned stem and the new shoots will grow rapidly. In June you will notice small clusters of flowers appear. Allow 2-3 flower clusters for each side shoot of a mature plant. In June prune all branches back to 1 leaf beyond the last cluster of flowers. If the grapes are the size of a pea you can thin out to produce larger grapes. In September, cut away the leaves around the grapes so they have a better chance of ripening with the sun.

  • Specifics
  • Red 'Lidi' grape vines produce deliciously succulent and large bunches of medium sized grapes. Depending on the weather the bunches should be ripe around early September. These grapes are actually more a reddish purple in colour but are commonly known as red grapes. Vitis vinifera ‘Lidi’ is used mainly as a table grape and is a pest and disease-resistant variety. This decorative vine is great for covering a pergola or fencing.
    Pollination will best occur when there are other vines in the vicinity.
