Bonsai grape vines from Sonoma


Grape bonsai, originally uploaded by mai-ke.

The Sonoma County Winegrape Commission is selling 10-to-12-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines, in bonsai tree form (seen at Dr. Vino). I like bonsai and I love wine, so it's almost the perfect combination! Except that you won't get more than a thimbleful of juice from a vine this size, and wine grapes aren't all that good for eating.

If you're going to grow a fruit bearing plant, why not just use normal grapes instead? They won't be fancy, but neither will they set you back $49.95 plus $30 shipping. Plus, you can grow yourself a tasty little snack.

Glad you like it Andy! And all the $50 goes to worker education in Sonoma.
