Hi all.

About 3 years ago we plant a grape vine in our garden. Not sure on the family, but possibly just a normal garden centre Sauvignon. This year it has exploded with growth. However some of the bunches have very small green grapes on them. The rest are nicely rounded and blackening.

Question is, is this normal or should we be doing something different?

There can be secondary crop emerges from the vine. We will only pick the first two and maybe a good third cluster from the shoots. Everything else gets thinned prior to harvest or dropped during harvest.
