    I am located in zone 4a/b north of Ottawa.

    In my backyard I have:
    Grape - Sommerset
    Grape - Reliance
    Grape - Pink Pearl
    Grape - Polar Green
    Grape - Earliblue
    Grape - Catawba
    Grape - Concord seedless
    Grapes - Petite Jewel
    Grapes - Concord

    Everything is under 3 years old so I have yet to get any grapes but they have survived thus far in my climate.

    I have room for 3-4 more varieties in my rows. Any recommendations? I see you have talked about Skookum and Einset but I don't know if they could survive here and besides that I can't seem to find any availability in Canada.

    I have considered: Montreal Blue, Mars, Vanessa as those are ones I have seen available and appear to be able to survive my climate.

    Valiant is very hardy. It is very available here.
