I have an established grape arbor. After moving in in October last year, I removed the rotted and moldy fruit with significant and messy effort. The grapes do not taste good. I do not want grapes. Is there any way I can have the shade of the grape arbor without the mess of the grapes I don't want. Removing the fruit is quite a chore. Thanks.

You could take out the grape plants and plant something different that you do like: another variety of grape, Wisteria, Boston Ivy, English Ivy, ...

The only other suggestion I have is to pick the fruit off before it develops, when they look like this:

there is a product called Flourel. My spelling my be wrong. It prevents plants from making fruit.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
