Ladies Fingers has been cultivated by winegrowers from the Mediterranean for many years. As the old description says, from there this variety got to the Crimean peninsula and soon it spread throughout Ukraine and some regions of Russia..

Ladies’ Finger got its name due to its unusual appearance (the berries of this variety are large and have an elongated shape). Its real name in scientific viticulture is Khusain Belyi. Despite the fact that caring for this variety is quite difficult and the plant can be subject to many diseases, the lady’s finger still continues to be grown, since no scientist has yet been able to bring out the best taste and higher yield of grapes.

Unfortunately, this grape variety could

not be distributed in many regions. This is due to the fact that for the ripening of the berries of this variety, a lot of heat and sun rays are required. This grape ripens for a long time.

And this means that if it is grown even in central Russia, then it simply will not have time to give a crop..

The berries of this variety have an oblong shape, they are present in large quantities on the bunches, although they do not fit too tightly to each other. Each Lady’s Finger berry can reach about 2.5-4 cm in length and 1.5-2 cm in width.

Description of the disadvantages of grapes.

Unfortunately, Lady’s Finger also has some disadvantages. That is why this variety is not the most popular among winegrowers..

So, this plant variety is extremely unstable to unfavorable weather conditions. So already at a temperature of -10 degrees, the plant may already die. This means that without good insulation, Lady Finger will not be able to spend the winter even in the warm Crimea.

In addition, Ladies’ Finger is extremely sensitive to fungal diseases. This is especially evident in hot weather..

It is necessary to process grapes from fungi of various types constantly, including autumn and spring..

Nevertheless, if any signs of a disease occur, the gardener must be sure of the nature of the disease and only after that start treating the plant..

It is also worth noting that excess moisture and heat often lead to berry rotting. And although fungi reproduce poorly and therefore practically do not infect the plant in rainy seasons, rotting can still spoil a significant part of the crop..

In this case, summer residents must remove rotting berries. This is necessary so that rot does not pass to healthy berries..

Description of planting grapes.

The advantages of the Lady’s Finger include the ability to transplant it any time of the year, with the exception of winter..

However, the landing period can still be very delayed. It depends on the method by which the gardener decided to plant the plant..

So if the summer resident decided to plant cuttings of this plant variety, then the most suitable time for this is mid-spring or autumn. In order to plant grapes with seedlings or shoots, you will have to wait until the end of spring or even better – the beginning of summer.

Absolutely any time can be suitable for grafting this variety, but it is especially good to carry out this procedure in the middle of summer. So, the grafted grapes are almost instantly strengthened and by autumn they begin to grow actively. It is allowed to propagate grapes using the layering method both in the spring and in the summer and autumn seasons..

Layers in this case almost immediately begin to take root and grow well, and this, in turn, allows them to be transplanted in the shortest possible time..

When transplanting a plant, special attention should be paid to the soil. The more fertile it is, the better. If there is poor soil in the area in which the grapes will be planted, then the grapes will have to be fertilized constantly, thus enriching the land many times over..

However, if possible, then for planting Lady’s Finger, preference should be given to light soils..
