A member of the Ampelidae family, the grape vine is one of the oldest cultivated plants. It is capable of climbing to a great height but under cultivation it is kept to one and a half metre trellises. There are many varieties, but they can be roughly divided into two groups; those for the table which tend to be larger, and those for wine making. Grapes are also dried to produce currants, sultanas and raisins.
