New to grapes, think it's black rot, help.
Posted by Amber Allensworth from OH on 2008-08-01 09:57:00

I've just moved into a new home and there is a well established grape vine complete with arbor. The vine flowered beautifully, is covered with leaves and bunches of green grapes, some however, are turning black and shriveling like a raisin. I'm fairly certain that it is black rot from a little nosing around online. What do I spray or dust them with specifically? What do I prune off now, rotted bunches, only rotted singles leaving the bunch? What do the leaves look like when they get it? Mine are all still healthy-looking and green.
