Grapes are the most common fruit and are also the oldest cultivated plant throughout the world. This presentation will define the grape and inform you on the general information, nutritional facts, and the many varieties of grapes. If your pondering growing grapes here, in Wisconsin, there is helpful information on how to do it and problems that may occur. I explain the parts of the plant, site selection, planting, pruning, harvesting and picking, and diseases. Let’s start out by asking, “What is a grape?”
Before pruning, an average grapevine may have 200 to 300 buds which are capable of producing fruit. If the vine is left unpruned, the number of grape clusters would be excessive. The vine would be unable to ripen the large crop or sustain adequate vegetative growth. The purpose of pruning is to grow yields of high quality grapes and to allow better growth for the following season.
Like people, plants can catch, spread and suffer from various diseases also.
Here is some information on certain diseases along with some solutions and cures.
You are what you eat. If that’s true, I’m a big ass perlette grape!
Hope you didn’t get too bored with this LONG, but informative, PowerPoint presentation…
