High Plains Grape Research

Researchers at the University of Nebraska have been testing grapes in Scottsbluff for 10 years. They have identified the following varieties for having good yield and hardiness potential: Frontenac, Valiant, Leon Millot, Marechal Foch, Elvira and deChaunac.

While Scottsbluff is a bit milder than most of Wyoming’s cities it still may be good to consider these varieties for Wyoming’s High Plains.
