Vitis californica
Cali Wild Grape, West Coast Grape, Santa Clara Grape

Description: A native to the western United States into extreme southern Canada. A vigorous grower that produces large, dense groups of grapes. Many like this for home wine making, and for making organic raisins. It is a deciduous vine which can grow to over thirty feet in length. It climbs on other plants or covers the ground with twisted, woody ropes of vine covered in green leaves. In the fall the leaves turn many shades of orange and yellow, and bunches of small and often sour but edible purple grapes hang from the vines. It is found statewide in California and into Oregon. It is a common sight along the banks of the Sacramento River.
