Veraison started about when predicted, and is nearly complete. Marquette began veraison on Monday, August 11, and was 95% complete by August 16. Frontenac was 50% done by August 16.
Harvest is now anticipated to begin the first weekend of October.
A random cluster was left behind on the two year old somerset seedless. Beautiful looking grape! After tasting a few berries, it is probably only a week or so from being able to be harvested. Good to know for future years! I did notice a slight residual seed, but not too much. It already has a nice taste. I heard rumors that it makes a decent wine ....... hmmmm?
