Grapes typically produce fruit every year, unless they are improperly pruned or if the season's harvest is not removed from the plant. If the old grapes remain, it can cause an alternate bearing cycle. You can thin the grape clusters just as they begin to form to promote fewer but larger grape clusters. This will result in not only better quality fruit, but it will remove excessive fruits which will stop the alternate bearing cycle.
