Grape Facts- How to harvest your grapes

We’ve got a few grape picks coming up this week, so for all you grape pickers out there, here are a few pointers to ensure a quick and satisfying harvest!

It is best to pick grapes on a warm, sunny day as the grapes will have the highest sugar content and will store better without any surface moisture.

To pick:

Hold a cluster of grapes in one hand and snip the whole cluster off the vine with sharp garden pruners or scissors. Breaking off the cluster is difficult and will damage the plant, so make sure you are being careful!
