Early gourmet - sweet grapes with a floral aroma


Despite the existence of many well-proven grape varieties, it is not uncommon for new hybrids to gain popularity due to their higher, unusual qualities. These hybrids include the early selection of V.N. Kraynova, with impressive brush and berry sizes, as well as an unusual taste.

The history of growing grapes Early Gourmet

Early gourmet is a relatively young variety that appeared about 10 years ago. Initially, the hybrid was named Novocherkassk red, then it was assigned the code 1–12. The author is the famous amateur breeder V.N. Krainov, who received a new hybrid from the parental pair Kishmish Radiant and Talisman. From the same pair, a whole line of hybrids with various properties was obtained, which V.N. Krainov gave the general name Gurman. Novocherkassk red got its final name Early Gourmet, and the rest of the hybrids from the same line began to be called Rainbow, Gourmet, Flashlight, Graceful.

The original name of the variety was Novocherkassky red

The early gourmet quickly gained popularity and since 2006 has been recognized as promising for cultivation in the south of Russia, Ukraine and Moldova. Since 2016, the early Gourmet has been included in the State Register of the Russian Federation under the name Gurman Krainova with admission to cultivation in all regions.

Description of the variety

According to the description from the State Register, the Early Gourmet is a table variety with a very early ripening period (the berries reach full ripeness after 110-115 days from the beginning of the growing season). The bushes are characterized by medium vigor. Strong light brown vines are covered with medium-sized three- or five-lobed leaves with a reticulate wrinkled surface. The flowers are female, blooming in early June.

Flowering begins in the first decade of June in the southern regions and in the second half of June in the middle lane

The clusters are rather large (on average 500–600 g, sometimes 1000–1300 g) and have a conical shape. The elongated oval berries are very large (weight 7–11 g). A dense but thin skin, which can be pink in various shades, covers the fleshy flesh. When shading the brushes, the berries can take on a lilac hue.

Gourmet bunches are composed of very large pink berries

The taste of the grapes has a pleasant harmony due to the high sugar content (15.6 g per 100 cm3) and a sufficient amount of acid (4.9 g / l). A characteristic feature of the grapes is the nutmeg flavor and light floral aroma. Tasters give the taste of fresh grapes a score of 9.1 points.

Each berry contains 2-3 medium-sized seeds.

Variety characteristics

The early gourmet is not without reason popular among winegrowers - he has many positive qualities:

  • stable high yield (6–8 kg per 1 bush, 200–201 kg / ha);
  • marketable appearance and great taste of berries;
  • good storage of berries on the bush;
  • high resistance to fungal diseases (mildew, oidium, gray rot);
  • resistance to transportation and storage.

The disadvantages of the Early Gourmet include the female type of flowers, which is why it is necessary to plant pollinating bushes. The hybrid is considered a covering crop, although its winter hardiness is not so low - up to -23 ... -24 aboutFROM.

Features of planting and growing

Good harvests from the Gourmet can be achieved only if all the rules of agricultural technology are observed. In general, the rules for planting and growing this hybrid are the same as for other varieties of grapes.

Landing requirements

One of the main requirements for growing grapes is the choice of a site with fertile soil and deep groundwater. It is advisable to plant grapes on a hill so that the roots of the plant do not suffer from stagnant moisture.

Since grapes have been and remain a thermophilic plant, the site should be well warmed up by the sun and protected from drafts. The southern and southeastern sides of the site are best suited for planting.

With a lack of sunlight, the functioning of the leaves is disrupted, the conditions for laying fruit buds deteriorate, the yield decreases and the susceptibility to diseases increases. For these reasons, vines should not be planted between fruit trees or in the shade of buildings. The distance from trees should be at least 6–7 m, from shrubs and other grape bushes - 3–3.5 m. To improve the lighting conditions, the bushes must be placed on trellises and shaped.

The gourmet, like most other grape varieties, reproduces well by self-rooted cuttings and grafting. It should be borne in mind that Gourmet cuttings are poorly resistant to root phylloxera, therefore, in areas with an increased risk of being affected by this disease, it is better to propagate Gourmet by grafting. For grafting, cuttings are harvested from the ripe part of the vine, with 2-3 eyes. You can store them in the refrigerator or cellar by waxing the end and wrapping them in a damp cloth.

Paraffin helps retain moisture in the cuttings

Vaccinations are done in the spring, usually in April. The rootstock is cut down completely, leaving a small stump, the surface of which is cleaned to smoothness. The center of the stump is carefully split and inserted into the split with the wedge-cut end of the cutting (2 cuttings can be installed). The grafting site is pulled together with strips of fabric and coated with clay.

When grafting into the split, it is necessary to ensure good contact between the cuttings and the stock.

If you want to plant your own rooted cuttings, it is quite possible to prepare them yourself. To do this, the shanks are cut slightly longer than for grafting (4–5 eyes, 30–35 cm long); the shank should be 8–12 mm thick. In February, the stems begin to germinate. To do this, cut off the waxed end and make several punctures with an awl in the lower part to facilitate root growth. It is recommended to treat the shanks with a growth stimulant, for example, immerse them for 2-3 days in a honey solution (1 tablespoon per liter of water).

Prepared shafts are placed in jars of water or immersed in containers with moist soil. Germination should take place in a room with good lighting and an air temperature of + 17 ... + 19 aboutFROM.

After about 4 weeks, buds swell on the stems and leaves bloom, and then young white roots grow. By the time of landing in the ground, the shanks become self-rooted.

Planting in open ground is carried out in late April - early May. The main condition is for the soil to reach a temperature of + 12 ... + 15 aboutFROM. If after planting a drop in temperature can be expected, the seedlings should be covered during the cold snap.

A planting pit measuring 0.8 m by 0.8 m is prepared 2-3 weeks before planting. A layer of broken brick is laid out at the bottom as drainage, and then half filled with compost mixed with soil and superphosphate (2 tablespoons).

It is believed that the flavor of the grapes will be significantly improved if the grapes are planted in areas where parsley is sown.

But on the site of the uprooted old vineyard, it is not worth planting cuttings - they will develop poorly, since the soil in such places is already very depleted.

You can dig a pipe at the edge of the pit for watering the grapes under the root.

If planting is carried out in cold regions, you can dig in dark glass bottles around the perimeter of the pit to warm the soil

Care must be taken when planting, as young grape roots are very fragile. The seedling is carefully sprinkled with earth, compacted and watered with 2-3 buckets of water. Then, it is advisable to mulch the near-trunk circle so that moisture remains in the soil for a longer time.

Another great way to propagate grapes is layering. The author successfully obtained whole rows of grapes in a short time in this way. Long vines are buried shallowly in the right places and ensure that they are constantly pressed against the soil using pieces of stone or bricks. The key to success is regular watering of the pits. In addition, one should not rush to separate the cuttings from the mother bush. The author made such a mistake on the first attempt at propagation by layering and as a result received a frail bush, which required a lot of additional care for normal development.

Grape care rules

An early gourmet does not require any special care, but he needs regular pruning, feeding and watering.

Pruning is done in spring and fall. In the spring, vines that have died during the winter are removed and shaping pruning is carried out. The gourmet does not like overloading; to ensure a good harvest, it is recommended to cut the vines into 6–8 buds, providing a total load on the bush in the amount of 30–35 eyes and 20–24 shoots. It is most convenient to form a bush in the form of a fan and place it on an ordinary single-row trellis.

The fan forming process takes 3-4 years

Autumn pruning occurs in late October - early November. Excessive growth and unripe shoots are removed. In regions with cold winters, Gourmet bushes are covered for the winter after autumn pruning. To do this, the vines are removed from the trellis, tied in bundles, laid on the ground and tied with straw, film, agrofibre or other insulating materials.

To ensure optimal wintering conditions, you can cover the vines on top of the film with a layer of earth.

Watering the grapes is needed regularly, especially in the first year after planting. A young seedling is watered every 7-10 days, the soil is loosened and mulched in the near-stem circle to retain moisture.

Adult bushes are watered 4–5 times per summer. A high demand for moisture is observed in grapes during bud opening, before flowering, during the growth of ovaries and after harvest. During these periods, it is necessary to organize irrigation at the rate of 50-60 liters of water per bush. Water is fed into irrigation furrows, cut half a meter from the trunk. The best irrigation option is drip irrigation, which allows you to maintain a constant level of soil moisture. In dry summers, soil mulching helps to maintain an optimal microclimate around the bush.

The early gourmet loves top dressing. The first nutrition for a young bush is provided with fertilizers applied to the planting pit. Usually they are enough for 2-3 years. Subsequently, it is necessary to regularly apply organic and mineral dressings to the grapes. Fertilization is mandatory for the crop after planting. Before flowering, phosphorus and potassium compounds are added. At the end of flowering, foliar feeding is carried out with microelements (manganese, zinc, iron).

As organic fertilizers for grapes, manure or bird droppings are applied in the form of a solution. These fertilizers contain a sufficiently large amount of nitrogen compounds, therefore, nitrogen fertilizers are not applied separately - their surplus can lead to excessive growth of green mass and a decrease in yield.

How to protect your vineyard from disease and pests

The early gourmet is considered very resistant to fungal diseases - mildew, gray rot and powdery mildew. Nevertheless, with high humidity, diseases can still appear. Therefore, preventive spring treatments with sulfur, Bordeaux mixture or other fungicides will not interfere. Such treatments are all the more necessary because, in their absence, anthracnose can develop, leading to drying out of fruits and branches and the appearance of brown spots on the leaves. If the disease appears, the affected areas are removed and burned, and the plant is treated with copper sulfate or Nitrofen.

Grape fruits affected by anthracnose are covered with brown spots, around which the pulp hardens and dries out

The Gourmet crop can suffer from the attack of grape and spider mites, therefore, periodic treatments with insecticides (Actellic, Phosbecid) and acaricides (Neoron, Apollo) are necessary.

To protect the crop from birds, a fine-mesh stack stretched around the bushes will help, and to protect against wasps - mesh bags put on each brush.

Despite the laboriousness, the method of protecting grapes with bags remains the most reliable.

Collection, storage and use of the crop

When flowering in early June, Gourmet in the southern regions begins to fill up in early July, and ripens by mid-August. In colder climates, for example, in Altai, ripening is postponed to early September.

The berries begin to turn pink in early July.

It is necessary to harvest at full ripeness, since it cannot ripen without a bush. The bunches are carefully cut with pruning shears and placed in shallow wooden boxes for transportation. You need to stack as tightly as possible, but not crush the berries! The gourmet is well kept - the brushes suspended in a cool room can wait for spring.

Gourmet berries have an excellent taste and can be consumed both fresh and used for making juice, jam, bakmes, raisins. Due to the unusual combination of nutmeg and floral aromas, the Gourmet is highly valued in winemaking.

Beckmes, or grape honey, is not only tasty, but also a very healthy delicacy.

Winegrowers reviews

Gourmet is a versatile variety, as it is suitable for cultivation on individual farms, as well as for industrial cultivation. With regard to the possibilities of using the crop, this variety is also versatile - it is suitable for table consumption, and for winemaking, and for conservation. This variety does not require much effort to grow; compliance with the standard rules of agricultural technology is sufficient to obtain high yields.

Features of caring for adult grape seedlings Early Gourmet

First of all, the grapes need regular pruning, which is carried out in early spring. All the shoots that died during the winter are removed, the vine is cut to 8-5 buds. On the bush itself there should be 30-35 eyes.

In late April-early May, intensive watering begins, which continues until mid-July. Fertilization is also recommended at this time. Before flowering, the plants are fed with phosphorus-potassium fertilizers. After finishing the color, iron and manganese are added. Further, watering is stopped so that the fruits collect enough sugar.

After irrigation and top dressing, loosening of the soil is necessary. This will help the roots absorb moisture faster and prevent rotting. In dry weather, after watering and loosening, the soil can be sprinkled with a layer of mulch, which will retain moisture.

After harvesting, the grapes need to be prepared for wintering. In the northern regions, with severe frosts, the plant needs insulation. For this, it is good to use branches of coniferous trees, for example, a spruce tree. It is also recommended to apply organic fertilizers in the fall. Chicken droppings and cow dung are good options. It needs to be distributed between the rows of the vineyard. During the winter, it will perfectly nourish the soil.

Disease control and prevention

Early gourmet - a plant resistant to diseases such as gray rot and Mildew. However, it may have other medical conditions.

Oidium or powdery mildew. Weak young plants are most often affected by this disease. Signs of the disease are gray bloom on the berries and leaves of the plant. As a result, the leaves dry out, and the berries begin to crack and rot. You can avoid such a nuisance with timely preventive measures.

Prevention should be carried out in early spring, at the beginning of shoot growth, by spraying. Plants are treated with special preparations that contain sulfur, copper or fungicide.

If the disease has already appeared on the leaves and berries, urgent spraying of the bushes with sulfur-containing preparations is necessary. Spraying is done at intervals of 14-21 days, until the disease disappears completely.

Anthracnose or fungal disease. It can appear with careless pruning and damage to the vine. It affects the shoots, foliage and berries of the plant. Shoots dry out, become brittle. The leaves are covered with brown spots. The fruits darken, wrinkle and dry.

Infected areas must be cut off and burned, and healthy bushes must be treated with preparations containing nitrofen or copper sulfate. For prophylaxis, before the beginning of flowering, plants are treated with iron-containing preparations, for example, the well-known Bordeaux liquid.

In general, early Gourmet grapes do not cause much trouble in growing. Therefore, novice gardeners can cope with the process. With proper care, the plant will delight you with beautiful berries with excellent taste.
