How Do Farmers Grow Seedless Grapes?

 

(The old way farmers grew seedless grapes.) Farmers use a special liquid to make grapes seedless. This liquid has a plant hormone called Gibberellin in it. The Gibberellin is formed from a fungus. The buds on the grape vine are dipped in this substance two weeks before flowers appear. When the flowers appear, they are dipped again. This is how the grapes are seedless.

 

This is what the grapes look like before their flowers bloom. This is when they are dipped in the special substance for the first time.
