Production and Management
Grapes may be grown in all parts of Tennessee. However, not all types of grapes or varieties of grapes are adapted to all parts of the state. With proper attention to selection of the correct type and variety of grapes, site selection and reasonable cultural practices, grapes can be a viable crop for both commercial and hobby growers. The development of commercial wineries and the introduction of several seedless grape varieties adapted to Tennessee growing conditions have contributed to grape production becoming an increasingly important part of Tennessee’s agricultural economy.
