Party Cotton Candy Grapes - Grow from stem

Hey Guys.

You may have heard there are Cotton Candy Grapes by Grapery farms that taste pretty much like Cotton Candy. They are amazing. Available for only 1 month out of the year (Augustish-Septemberish).

I wanted to try to grow some of these from the stems. Today I bought bags of grapes that have a thicker healthier looking stem to try. I've never done this before.

So far I've read:

Remove grapes
1) Trim stem of rotten or brown/black parts
2) Place in glass of water
3) 4 days roots should start to be showing
4) After about 10 days, there should be enough roots for planting in soil (check)
5) When large enough and the temperatures allow, plant outside.

Has anyone grown grapes from stems successfully? Is there anything I could buy to dip the stem in before water to increase the rooting odds? I want to increase the odds of my success so I can grow them in my backyard. Any help out there?

Thanks.

mcfly

I bought some of those grapes last year at my local Publix grocery store. They were awesome. Good luck!

Cincinnana - you grow all sorts of things and have lots of contacts - this looks like a real interesting way of propagating if it works - any comments??

i've never heard of rooting the grape bunch stems. I'm not sure those will root. ... But rooting 14" to 18" grape canes is not hard. Just remove any leaves and cut the cane just below the bottom node. Push into potting soil about 6". Done in the fall with hardwood cuttings, you should see new growth the next spring. .... Using new softwood cuttings in the mid summer there should be new growth in 5 to 8 weeks. ... Expect an 80% success rate.

.
There are a few youtube videos on the subject.
Judging by the interest on the internet seems folks are giving it a go.

It sure is worth a try.
