Question:

MY grape vines are healthy and producing grapes. When the fruit matures to

What can I do to avoid this problem. I have growing these grapes for 18

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!
