im so confused. i got as a gift from two different friends. standard 2 fruit grapes. 2 seedless grape (like the one that's for raisins i think not sure) and 3 wine type vine. if i plant them too close together will i ruin them? like they cross and not be very good for either or is that only if i try to plant the seeds. right now im thinking of just putting them on two different ends.?

on my packages it doesnt say much one says wine grape the other two says good for raisins and fruit that's about it.

Wine self polinate, and you shouldn't get a difference in fruits if they pollinate each other - only seeds may be different.

I Malaga we use muscatel grapes for radical a, wins and to eat - of course there are different grapes with different taste, but they are no specific for one purpose IMO

Fruit and raisin grapes can take a little hotter climate (like you have in Sacramento) than wine grapes do. They grow fruit and raisin grapes in Fresno and the Coachella valley, but wine grapes are found along the coast, where they have the cooling influence of the fogs. I would suggest planting the fruit and raisin types in the full sun areas of your garden and putting the wine grapes in a more protected area, maybe an area that only gets half a day of sun. As Dawn noted, they are not likely to cross, so microclimate is going to be a more important consideration.
