There’s nothing like a fresh grape plucked right from the vine.
The best time to pick grapes is on a warm and sunny day. The grapes will be the sweetest and will store best if they do not have any moisture. To pick, hold a cluster of grapes in one hand, and snip the entire cluster from the vine with sharp scissors or pruners. Breaking off a cluster is difficult and will damage the plant, it’s best to quickly and cleanly cut the vine with something sharp.
Gently place each bunch in a pail or bucket. That’s it! Easy enough for everyone to do.
