Hello Linda,

You don't need to worry about the grape plants cross pollinating each other, unless you are planning on planting the grape seeds. Which no one does. Ever. Because grapes are so easy to propagate from cuttings that keep true to type. (OK maybe some grape breeders do plant seed, but I'm talking about normal people).

The nature of the fruit is determined by the genetics of the mother plant, the pollen just contributes to the gebnetics of the seed. Your grape plants will always grow the type of fruit they are supposed to. Prune them back every winter, make sure they have good soil, and they'll be happy for years.
