In this video Dr. Elena Garcia from the University of Arkansas discusses sour rot, which has been a serious disease on the table grapes grown in Arkansas high tunnels. Sour rot is a disease complex that infects grapes and causes clusters to rot with a distinct sour vinegar smell. Cultivars with tight clusters and thin skins are more susceptible to this disease and it is favored by wet weather, wounds or injury to fruit.
