Can't say, though I'm sure several cultures have done it.  This is something
I've tried out on my own.  It's one of a number of things I'm preparing for
a new book, on using grapes (ALL parts of the grape vine) as a companion to
The Grape Grower.

I associate eating grape leaves with Greek food.  Is the eating of green
shoots of grapes associated strongly with any culture?  I have never heard
of doing this.

If you have a mist bench you can cut them up into green cuttings and root
those.  If the vine doesn't have fuzzy or hairy shoots (such as Concord
does), smooth stemmed green shoots can be steamed and eaten, though you
might want to sweeten them a bit - they tend to be acid.

Hello All,

Every year I get a couple of grape suckers coming up from the base of my
vines.  Can these be rooted?

Hate to just toss things away.  Especially when you can sell them!
