Grape pruning basics

All grapes require heavy pruning to produce fruit, but after the first three growing seasons, different types of grapes need different pruning. Wine grapes and muscadines usually need spur pruning, and American grapes, such as Concord and Thompson Seedless require cane pruning.

Out of Control Grape Vines!

Q: Hello: I have an old (10+ years) grape vine, which has not been pruned in at least six to eight years. It produces, but of course its several branches are very long. Would I be wise to prune it back severely, to the first branching of the vine for best future health and production? I'm assuming that would certainly lose this year's grapes, which is okay, if we can grow larger, healthier grapes on a well-tended vine in the future. Thanks for any advice. - Dan in The Dalles
