The Q&A Archives: Grapes drying up before maturing

Question: Question:

MY grape vines are healthy and producing grapes. When the fruit matures to
about 15 % it starts drying up and stops producing. This happen last year.
What can I do to avoid this problem. I have growing these grapes for 18

Answer: Lack of pollination is usually the problem. Grapevines often begin to develop cluster and then abort some of them. I'd suggest thinning the grape clusters. This way you will have fewer grapes but larger, sweeter fruits. Best wishes with your grapes!
