Black rot

Asked September 8, 2020, 5:00 PM EDT

my grapes have black rot and are slowly dieing on the vine. My question is can I still use the juice from the berries on the vine that have not dried up and fallen off or are they unsafe to eat?

Yes, the unaffected fruit is safe to eat.

Editing to add: I assumed since you know what was affecting you plants that you've read up on it, but thought I should add a link to management tips anyway: https://extension.umn.edu/fruit/growing-grapes-home-garden#diseases-and-other-challenges-986261
