Good and Bad

2010champsbcsJune 1, 2014

The good is that my Mars almost seedless grapes are responding well from trimming the clusters about one third. The bad news but not associated with the good news is some of my grape clusters have dark spots. What is the spots and what effect will they have on the grapes?

Well I have what I believe is the same thing on some of my Reliance, Swenson Red and Jupiter grapes. I think on mine its a high humidity issue. Just hope it is not black rot. I have been doing some research on it and the pictures seem to match.

How do you like your Mars grapes? I have thought about adding that one.

Silagepackerboy. This is my first and only seedless grape and it was selected first for disease resistance and then taste. It is a good grape but not as good as the ones that I buy. The skin tends to be slip skin and there is a little portion of seed or something inside. The taste is great.
