In this video you will learn how to determine when table grapes are ready to harvest by measuring sugar content and assessing the color of the grape clusters. Dr. Elena Garcia from the University of Arkansas shows how to use a refractometer in the field to measure the sugar content (or Brix) of the grapes and discusses how the color of grape clusters will change as they mature. You can read more information on high tunnel grape production in our ATTRA publication "High Tunnel Grapes: Establishment" available at https://attra.ncat.org/attra-pub-summ...​ This video was produced by NCAT and is part of the High Tunnel Grape Project funded by Southern SARE and led by the University of Arkansas in collaboration with Cooperative Extension, the National Center for Appropriate Technology, and the Arkansas Association of Grape Growers.
