Grapes (Eng.), Druiwe (Afr.)

Grape vines are deciduous and bear bunches of round to oval berries. Barlinka grapes have dark purple to black berries with pips. The bunches are dense and they have a sweet, crisp taste. Prune with semi (4-6) to long bearers (8 buds). Poor colour on fertile soils, prefer light soils with suitable rootstocks. Good storage ability.
