These nurseries are still gearing up for large orders but will also service hobbyist orders. As the varieties become better know and used they will be more widely distributed and available. I’d start by checking with those nurseries. They usually have a minimum order and Double A might be the most accommodating of hobbyist orders."

Your local Cooperative Extension office should be able to advise you on grape varieties that grow well in your region.

I would like to see some hybrid southern grapes with the arizonica gene. For example, instead of using all vinifera varieties in their crossing use blanc du boise, daytona, seyval blanc, chardonnel, conquistador laurot, villard blanc etc. maybe mix a pure vinifera into the mix here and there (like a ruby cabranet which is well adapted to heat). Get them to the level of being 3% or 1.5% v. Arizonica with the high pierce tolerance but also doing well in heat and humidity and with good overall disease resistance.
