I know they are not much to look at but I’m really chuffed. I’d planted the vine a couple of year ago in anticipation of installing a pergola. The planting position is far from ideal for producing grapes as it’s in the shade of a tree.
The pergola is yet to go up but I’ve just let the vine do it’s own thing each year in order to produce a good root system and hopefully it will be quicker to cover the pergola once it is finally up.
I’ve planted more vines out in the fruit garden and I’m hoping for further desert grapes next year once those plants are fully established. I’ll post a picture of those vines once I’ve got them all in and the support wires in place.
