    This weekend I noticed some of my marquette berries turned purple, does Marquette veraision come this early?

    I started seeing signs of veraison in my Marquette on July 12 in each of the past two seasons. West central Iowa.

    May I ask how old your Marquette vines are? I too in the NOVA/DC area and just planted 30 Marquette vines in May and am interested in hearing how they do for others in the area along with what I might be able to expect. I’d be interested in knowing what your harvest date and numbers end up being as well.

    No sign here in northern NM. Usually starts in early August for me.

    Still green in northern CT but with all the heat we’ve been having it wouldn’t surprise me if they ripen early this year.

    Crazy, my Cab Franc just started veraison this week down in Manassas. You mentioned your vines are 5 years old - is this the first year you’ve had grapes from them?

    Taste some , , the quick test for ripening has to be a drop in acid/ increase in sugar/ softening of berry.
    A cluster does not ripen 100% all at the same time.

    Yes. Last year are all lost to rain, and previous year to a cold snap in May.

    Y'all are killing me. The only round things on my first-year marquette vines have legs and eat the leaves, so that's my fun at the moment.

    I had to deploy my local "air force" this AM. I found two young Spotted Towhee's raiding the few berries that had turned. I blasted them with high power water and they just laughed at me. Then I put up the boys and suddenly they left neighborhood post haste......
