Question: What varieties of grapes are best for Texas?
Answer: Unfortunately, it’s much more specific than that. You should probably check with your local county Extension office for the most precise information and the latest variety suggestions. Old stand-byes for big areas of the state, however, have always been Seibel 9110 and Champanel. With the resurgence of interest in wine grapes, however, many other varieties are proving suitable. You do need to be careful to select types that are adapted, however. Many of the finer table grapes from California and elsewhere have major disease problems in the eastern two-thirds of Texas.
