Bulk Phaseolus coccineus seeds can be a great way to get Bordeaux grapes into your garden. This is because the larger your seeds, the easier it is for them to germinate and grow into delicious bunches of grapes. They are also ideal for those who enjoy preparing foods in large quantities or for those who simply want to save money on expensive grapes that they would not grow themselves. There are some tips that you should keep in mind when preparing these grapes, however.
When it comes to Bordeaux grapes, they should be seeded on a southern slope. This will ensure that they have enough of acidity to counteract the alkalinity of the soil that they grow in. After they have been sown and produced, they need to be replanted in their permanent location. There are special equipment that can be used to do this, so ask your local nursery for information if you do not know how to do this.
After your Bordeaux grape bunches have been planted, they will need about six weeks to come to fruition. The trick to getting your bunches to grow quickly is to harvest them while they are still small. Grape juice made from these bunches is delicious, so it is important to use them as soon as they come to fruition. At this point, they will not be producing many bunches. It will be up to you to keep them moist, but try not to over water them.
If you are planning on replanting these grapes, you will find that they will need to be divided. It is important to remember that bunches do not all grow at the same rate, so you will need to divide the group that you have chosen accordingly. This will allow you to be able to place the bunches in the garden, ready for replanting in the spring when the weather is nice.
There is an easy way to tell if your bunches are producing. When you pick a bunch up, it should be soft and corky. If the bunches are hard and dry, then they are past their prime and will not come up at all when you replant them. If your bunches come up and are hard and dry right after you pick them, then they are mature and will produce as many bunches as they can before they wilt. Wasting seed is not very common in the hobby, but it is possible to do it with the Bordeaux grape varieties. It is not something that you need to worry about, but it does take away from the pleasure of growing your grapes.
As the bunches come up in the late summer and early fall, they will begin to change color. Some of them will stay green, but most of them will turn a rusty red color. This is a natural thing and does not mean the seeds are bad. In fact, it is quite the opposite, the older the bunches get the more red they will turn.
As the bunches come up in the springtime, they will still be green, but they may turn slightly lighter. If they are exposed to too much sun, the leaves will turn a bronze or even orange color. They will also become brittle and short. This does not mean the bunches are bad. They are just going through the growing process and will look different in the coming months. What you want is healthy bunches.
So, when you replant your Bordeaux grape vines, take a look at the top of the plant. You will see the berry has three leaves. The third one is the furthest away from the other two. This means the bulk phaseolus bunches come first out of the ground, while the rest of the bunches come up in the spring. That is why it is important to replant the majority of your Bordeaux grape vines in the spring, before the majority of the bunches come up in the winter.
