Healthy Shoots have been growing rapidly and the clusters are beginning to take shape. At this stage the clusters are in their pre-bloom phase. The next step is flowering when the plant self-pollinates and each individual berry is formed. This is a crucial time in the development of the clusters. Any sort of rain or heavy winds can destroy the pistils and stamens resulting in poor fruit set.
