Finding grape vine *plants* to plant at home
Hi Ellen:

Can you tell me how to choose a grape vine to plant in my garden? I want to grow the leaves for cooking stuffed grape leaves, but I've been told that for dolmas, you need a specific type of grape vine. Does that sound true to you?
Thanks for any advice on this.


I don't think type of grape is the most important, rather that they be young and tender leaves. I would not use muscadine grape plants, American vines which have a wild or foxy taste.
