Organic Catawba Grape Seeds
Vitis labrusca

Description: Grown on the East Coast, this Red to Purplish grape is medium-size and oval in shape. One of the preferred grapes for making wine, jam, jellies, and pies in the Appalachian region. Grows wonderfully well to elevation up to 6,000 feet. It has seeds and an intense, sweet flavor with very little tannin flavor. The Catawba is available from September to November but is mainly used commercially (for jams, jellies and white wines), and is rarely found in supermarkets.
