Description of grapes furor
The Furor grape belongs to those species that are bred by simple winegrowers. In the Rostov region, there is a man who, having neither degrees nor scientific titles, has bred several hybrid forms of grapes. The name of this lover is Vasily Ulyanovich Kapelyushny. Since 1969, an amateur winegrower began the first experiments in growing this crop.
Since the 90s, he has devoted almost all of his time to growing grapes, developing new hybrid forms and popularizing amateur viticulture. The result of V. U. Kapelyushny's work was a multitude of new resistant forms of grapes and millions of cultivated varietal seedlings. The Furor grape is one of the hybrids created by V. Kapelyushny.
Furor belongs to the early table varieties. From the moment of formation of the ovary to maturation, no more than 110 days pass. The popular and unpretentious Laura became the parent form for this hybrid. When pollinated with a mixture of pollen, a hybrid grape with stable varietal properties was obtained. The advantages of the furore are:
- weight of brushes over 0.9 kg
- berry weight 15 - 20 g
- thin skin
- small number of seeds 2-3
- dessert taste, with a fruity accent
- sugar content 20-23%
- acid content less than 6 g / cubic dm
The shape of the berries is elongated. When ripe, the berries become impenetrable black with a slight sheen. In addition, good resistance to low, up to - 24 degrees, temperatures and major diseases of grapes instantly made the hybrid popular among hobbyists. The berries are almost not damaged by wasps, do not burst and do not crumble for a long time.
There were no obvious shortcomings in Furora. One of the drawbacks can be considered the formation of many bunches, which are an excessive load on the vine. Growing Furora is no different from growing other grape varieties and hybrids, but requires some skill and knowledge.
Features of growing grapes furor
The ability to tie a crop more than even a strong and vigorous Furora bush can withstand requires such a technique as regular normalization. In this case, you need to remove:
- extra inflorescences and bunches
- part of fruiting shoots
First of all, shoots that look weak and thin against the background of the rest are subject to removal. Such a procedure will give access to sunlight to the remaining bunches and reduce the load on the root system. The permissible number of eyes on the Furora bush can be up to 35 - 40 pieces. In addition, this hybrid form is sensitive to northerly winds.
This is especially true for the flowering period. If it is not possible to choose a plot for Furor from the south or south-west side, then it is better to place the bushes under the protection of any building.
Strong winds not only damage the flowers and the ovary, they dry out the shoots of the grapes. Growing fur does not require a pollinator. Its flowers are bisexual. If the grapes are grown not on their own roots, but as a graft, then they combine well with almost all rootstocks. The best yields can be harvested from a furor grape if it grows on light, permeable, well-fertilized soils.
It is worth avoiding the close standing of groundwater. This causes decay and death of the roots and the entire bush. If the growing region is characterized by severe cold and windy winters, then Furor is best grown with shelter for the winter. In addition, grapes need proper planting and care after it.
How to plant grapes furor
Furor is perfectly adapted for both spring and autumn planting. Planting material can be:
- seedlings on their roots
- grafted seedlings
- green cuttings with roots
In the first two cases, you need to make sure that the root system is healthy, there are no dry or rotten areas. the root should be light. Green cuttings must be soaked in water until roots appear. The distance between the Furora bushes should be 3-4 meters. The distance between the rows is 5 m. Such distances are maintained taking into account the size of the Furora bushes.
The landing pit is prepared for planting 14 days before it. The size of the pit is 80 by 80 cm. A layer of earth mixed with manure, nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers is poured onto the bottom. A layer of soil without fertilizers is made on top. After the pit has stood, a grape seedling is placed in it.
Before that, it is advisable to put it in a solution of any stimulant for several hours. The root system is carefully covered with soil, periodically tamping it slightly. The embedment level should be up to the root collar. After that, the planted bush is spilled with 1-2 buckets of water, after which the earth is mulched.
In those regions where winters are harsh, it is better to keep seedlings or cuttings until spring, as there is a threat that they will not have time to take root before the onset of cold weather. Adult bushes in such regions need to be covered for the winter. In dry summers Furor is responsive to additional watering.
He especially needs her in the first two or three years after landing. Spraying the furore with a 10% mullein solution will be a good prevention against diseases. In conclusion, it must be said that the variety trials of the Furor variety have not yet been completed. It is possible that this hybrid form is the future of amateur viticulture.
