Vines have been a valuable source of food in our world for a very long time. They bring nutrients and flavor. They provide an exquisite base for some of the most delicious wines in existence, and they sustain many vital functions of our bodies. The fruit of the vine is an important staple in the lives and diet of millions.

Though it may seem like an insurmountable task to plant and nurture a vine garden full of fruit, it is not so intensely complicated. With just a small base of knowledge concerning these plants, a complete and fruitful garden is only a matter of planting. Take a closer look at some of the most popular fruit producing vines available for planting.


Wild Grape Vines

Everyone loves the full flavor of a perfectly ripe grape in his or her mouth. Grapes are an excellent source of some powerful antioxidants like polyphenols. These antioxidants have been proven to help the body resist many variations of cancer; lung, mouth, pancreas, prostate, and colon. They are also an excellent source of vital vitamins and nutrients. Growing these vines around the land can bring many health benefits to life.

Wild Raspberry Vines

Raspberries should be known for more than just their sweet flavor. They also pass on many healthy vitamins and minerals to the person eating them. Raspberries are high in fiber and vitamin C (which benefits the human immune system). They are also an ideal source of potassium, copper, and vitamin K (which is a valuable element in respiratory health).


Wild Dewberry Vines

Dewberries are a variety of the most well-known blackberry. They are just as delicious and palatable as well. These berries are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin K, and vitamin E. If it is hard to remember just how healthy these berries are, then think of CAKE! These berries are also commonly eaten for their antioxidants.


Wild Blackberry Bushes

Blackberries have many of the same health benefits as Dewberries. Since they are cousins in a minuscule family, these berries are also a great source of vitamins C, A, K, and E. This does not, however, mean that a blackberry cake is a healthy alternative to eating raw, fresh berries. Cooking these berries in pies and cakes eradicates the majority of their healthy contents.
