Tourists go grapes for Ninh Thuan gardens

New elongated 'fingernail' grapes in Ninh Thuan has three colors - green, red and yellow, and their charm helps allure more tourists to the south central province.

Thai An Village in Vinh Hai Commune of Ninh Hai District has 182 hectares of grapes grown by 540 households. Locals began experimenting with the fingernail grape from Japan two years ago hoping for a higher yield.

This new variety of grapes has three colors - green, red and yellow.

At the start of 2017, fingernail grapes were planted across 5,000 square meters. Today, they occupy 70,000 square meters (7 hectares).

There are two main harvests per year, the first during the winter-spring transition and the latter at the end of summer into fall.

The fruit itself can be harvested year-round. However, for quality purposes, planters adhere to strict procedures to avoid the October to November rainy season.

This new variety of grapes has three colors - green, red and yellow.

"The grape requires consistent maintenance, frequent pruning and removal of smaller berries for an even and uniform cluster," said farmer Nguyen Thi Kim Lien.

Fingernail grapes have a sweet, succulent flavor and crunchy skin. Their seeds do not possess the typical acridity of other local grapes. Their price starts at VND120,000 ($5.2) per kg.
