You may see a vine that seems not to have fruit, but 50 feet up in a tree, it will have a small bunch that the birds and squirrels enjoy. I just pulled some out of my oak trees that had fruit way up in the tops of the trees. I wouldn't have pulled them out, but there were no leaves lower down and I thought they were wisteria....piles of vines, with leaves and grapes only near the tops! I have never seen anything like it!

We have a sunny spot around our house in Boston, MA & I've thought of trying to grow wild grapes there next year. However, I have a couple concerns & hoping some of you have some ideas. I see wild grape vines growing all over our area but almost none of them seem to have any grapes on them. In fact, I don't recall seeing any ripening grapes on these vines earlier in the summer nor flowers on them back in the spring. If I were to grow grape vines, I'd like them to produce fruit. What is going on? Is a lack of fruit common with wild grapes?
