Nasayod Ka Ani Bai?

Did you know that we can grow grapes here in Cebu? I know right? It seemed impossible when they first planted it 8 years ago here in the Island City of Lapu-lapu!

At first they wanted it to be just shade for the parking area. To their surprise, it has provided them fruits regularly and they are able to harvest 3-4x a year. 100% Fully Organic and growing in a small 30cm wide planter!

What are the benefits of growing a grapevine at home? Aside from its delicious fruit, here is a list to name a few of its awesomeness:

  1. Provides beautiful shade and aesthetically pleasing as an additional for your home gardens.
  2. Leaves can be eaten as a salad, tea, smoothies or for cooking.
  3. Packed With Nutrients, Especially Vitamins C and K
  4. High Antioxidant Contents May Prevent Chronic Diseases
  5. Plant Compounds May Protect Against Certain Types of Cancer
  6. May Help Lower Blood Pressure
  7. May Help Reduce Cholesterol
  8. May Decrease Blood Sugar Levels and Protect Against Diabetes
  9. Contain Several Compounds That Benefit Eye Health
  10. May Improve Memory, Attention and Mood
