Abstract or Description: 
Growing table grapes is fun and easy because they do well in most soils and are suited to Arizona’s diverse climate. Choosing a site with full sunlight, selecting the right variety, and caring for the vines properly will produce tasty fruit. Vines require several years from time of planting to the first harvest. Full production can be obtained in five to six years. Vines can survive for 50-100 years if properly cared for. Grapes require special care for maximum production of excellent quality fruit. The most important practice is the training and pruning of vines once they are established.
