Taichung County—

One of the agriculture products in Sinshe Town(新社鄉), Taichung County, is the grapes. The grape leaves now appear a little brown because of the effect of many typhoons this fall. The almost 30 morgen grape field is situated in Ba Cong Shu (八叢樹) called by the locals, Sinshe Town(新社鄉). Mr. Chou and Liao built a greenhouse over here to grow the quality grapes.

Mr. Liao represents that Sinshe’s grapes feature a little sour taste and the special planting way. To grow grapes, the farmers in Erlin(二林鎮) and Sihu Town (溪湖鎮) stick the branches in soil while the farmers in Sinshe Town graft the branches on the grape trees. If you look at the root carefully, you can see the trace of graft. The high-grip root of sour grapes is grafted on the quality grape tree selected by farmers.

Mr. Liao also mentioned that the agriculture technology in Taiwan is high-end. The weather in Taiwan is actually not suitable for grape growing. Farmers have used the top-notch technology to plant the great grapes. The senior famers told me that they grew the Japanese species 40-50 years ago. After the skills has been consecutively improved, people can eat the big and sweet Kyoho grapes(巨峰葡萄).

【新社花海節】冬果採收 黑又甜的巨峰葡萄

錢弘芸/台中縣

  中縣新社鄉有許多特色農產品,開車經過鄉間小道,會發現道路兩旁有許多葡萄園,2008年多秋颱,葡萄樹的葉子透著點焦黃色。在新社八叢樹下(當地人的稱呼)一帶的葡萄園有將近三十甲地,其中兩班的周先生與廖先生更首先蓋起「溫室」悉心培育出品質穩定的優良葡萄。

  廖先生表示新社鄉出產的葡萄,特色是帶點微酸,就因為這酸更提出果香與甜度。栽種方法也不一樣,二林、溪湖一帶的葡萄以阡插的方式種植,新社鄉則以嫁接的方式進行培育。仔細看果樹的根部,可以清楚看到其嫁接的模樣,底下的根是抓地力較強的酸葡萄,接的是農友們在自己園中挑選的優質品種。

  廖先生說台灣的農業技術真的很發達,就以葡萄來說,台灣的氣候又濕又熱,根本不適合葡萄生長,是硬顧出來的。在場的老前輩則說四、五十年前他們種的葡萄是綠色的日本品種,經過不斷的改良,現在可以吃到大又甜的巨峰葡萄囉!
