Grape, Bunch (Vitis vinifera)

Grapes grow in bunches or clusters on woody vines that use tendrils to attach to supports. Fruit may be green, red, purple, or yellow when ripe. Individual grapes are round or oval, thin-skinned and juicy. Seeds are few or absent, small, round and often pointed at one end. Leaf shapes vary with type and cultivar but are usually large, roundish to heart-shaped, often lobed, with serrate margins. Both wild and cultivated grapes can be grown throughout Florida.
