When Is the Best Time to Harvest Grapes?

Answer

Many growers make the mistake of harvesting their grapes before they are ready. This tends to ruin the entire crop and leads to wastage in terms of money and effort. The best time to harvest grapes would be when their color changes significantly from green to purple and when the size of the grapes ceases to increase. However, each variety of grapes has different harvesting periods.
