Mine are the same, solid as rocks, so we are going to let the birds eat them, if they can Lol.

GM these are soft but just too many pips and so sour, they are dessert grapes so not sure what went

Last year we were able to eat them all as for the first time ever they were 'good enough and sweet enough to eat' this year twice as many and useless ! Only good enough for the birds. It has been a very short season though hasn't it?

Yes it has GM...thought we were doing really well when we saw all the bunches, as it is only 2 years old we were very surprised it had made such growth.

Think they enjoyed the drought we had !!!!! Then the rains came and that swelled the fruit, hope the birds have tough beaks !
