Grape cultivar performance in the Missouri Ozark region
Two grape cultivar trials were established at Southwest Missouri State University, State Fruit Experiment Station starting in 1985. Twenty-seven wine and ten table grape cultivars were planted in a Viraton silt loam, a shallow soil typical for the Ozark region. Based on overall productivity (yield, pruning weight, juice composition) over four or more years the wine cultivars best suited for the region were 'Catawba,' 'Cayuga White,' 'Chambourcin,' 'Norton,' 'Seyval blanc,' 'Vidal blanc,' and 'Vignoles.' The best table cultivars were 'Mars' and 'Reliance'.
