    Default small grapes

    I have a boskoops glory in my greenhouse. It has quite a few bunches of grapes on it, but the thing is the grapes are very small but have started to ripen. Have i done something wrong. They are just slightly larger than a pea.

    I have just cycled to our local(ish) garden centre and bought a Boskoop G. vine. It was the only thing I went for, so I am very keen to find out about your grape Pepper.

    Did you thin the bunch out. The fuller the bunch, generally the smaller the grape.

    With grapes as a rule, "less is more"

    Have you tried tasting it?

    I have been thinning them, but maybe I have not taken enough off each bunch. I have not tasted them yet. I went out and took a pic to let you see. Attachment 2577
