Growing Table Grapes In Hawaii
Since 2015, Gerry Herbert and Nancy Redfeather have been conducting experimental field trials for table grapes on their farm in Kona, Hawaii. They have trialed approximately 58 different varieties and have discovered that there are varieties that can be successfully grown for juice, raisins, jelly, frozen, etc. Some of the varieties would most likely also make good wine, but that has not been the focus of their work.
From 2021 to 2023 the Project was funded through a Western SARE Farmer/Rancher Grant and we were able to produce videos, blogs, and a 56-page booklet titled “Growing Table Grapes in Subtropical Hawaii Using Organic Practices.” Our Booklet goes into detail regarding every aspect of growing grapes in this environment.
If you would like to download and read a copy of our Booklet here.
Additional Information on this website includes Grape Blogs, Grape Videos, Grape Resources and Reports, and Grape Photos. We will continue to add material to those pages as time goes on and inform you with a Shoutout if you sign up to receive our occasional mail at the bottom of the Home Page.
