Sinshe’s sour soil makes the grapes sour but grapes are sweet because of the high temperature difference between day and night, and the high geography. Drop the medicine on the sprout of successfully grafted grape tree to help this sprout grow another sprout. Due to this method, there are two harvest seasons in one year. (Two kinds of grape: Summer grapes and winter grapes.) Summer or winter grapes taste better in some places, but bad in other places. In Shinshe Town, the winter grapes are more superior to summer grapes, because cold currents in March and April influence the grapes.
The greenhouse is built to avoid the damage of cold currents so that the summer grapes could be sold at higher prices. What is the secret to growing the delicious grapes? Mr. Chou mentioned that diligence and weather are essentials.
The tasty winter grapes are ready to be put on the market. For example, Bai Mao Tai Grape(白毛台葡萄), as an export to Japan during the end of this year.
Thanks for the efforts of farmers when you eat the grapes.
