The variety "Lydia" is distinguished by powerful, fast-growing bushes, capable of producing dozens of bunches annually. Let's learn more about the main characteristics of this grape.
The variety is very productive, despite the small clusters. From 1 ha, they collect up to 120 c. One bush produces up to 40 kg of grapes. High yield is associated with excellent maturation of the vine – 4-6 full-fledged bunches grow on one shoot. Moreover, there is no need to normalize the bushes – they can easily withstand the load of the crop.
The variety belongs to the late-maturing category. The ripening of the berries is long – about 160 days. In the temperate zone, the harvest is ready around the middle of September. To ripen the berries were juicy, sweet and as large as possible, the bushes are regularly watered. The ripening is unfriendly – the bunches facing the sun are the first to ripen.
