Fruit Set in Monmouth County, N.J. (Outer Coastal Plain AVA)

June 13, 2011. Outer Coastal Plain AVA, Monmouth County, N.J.

The beginning of the 2011 vintage...Fruit Set occurs after flowering and describes the period where the vine flowers self-polinate and burst into small green pebbles. They barely resemble the plump, juicy grapes-nature willing-they'll become. It is also the first real indication of the potential number of clusters per vine and rate of grape development within a cluster.
