OTHER INFORMATION: In older Cluster yards in the Grants Pass (OR) area and also in some Yakima yards, Canadian RedVine was mixed in with Clusters. Canadian RedVine probably originated in Canda (hence the name) and due to its extreme vigor and rhizome production it spread rapidly. Farm workers were given orders to collect roots from an existing Cluster field in preparation for new Cluster plantings and when they found a huge crown (probably RedVine) that yielded several hundred roots (rhizomes) they could easily fill their bucket from one crown which, sadly, was not Cluster.
