I was thinking about buying a few grape vines, but I'm not sure how long ill be at this location for so I'm curious how log it will take for a small vine clipping to produce grapes under good sunlight and excellent soil to give it a fighting chance. Mind you I live in New York and everyone is getting a late start on their gardens because its been freezing.

I live in a Mediteranian type climate so we can get fruit from a cutting in two or three years, not really sure how grapes go in a colder climate such as yours :dunno:

I see and what about if I buy two or three year old cutting? What do I do if I want to just see a couple grapes this year? My Italian relatives have beautiful grapes for decades they grow all over the patio.

You might be able to get one year old cuttings but anything older would probably already have been planted, if your relatives are in the same climate as you try to find the same variety so you know they will suceed.
