Grapes have long been considered a wonderful addition to a garden or plot. It can be grown on walls, trellises or trellises. When planted correctly, grapes take up little space. For the fruits of the plant to ripen, you need soft earth and an abundance of sunlight. For growing in cool climates, breeders have bred special frost-resistant varieties, one of which is Rumba.
The Rumba grape was obtained by crossing the Red Rapture variety (known as ZOS-1) with the Cherrel variety. This hybrid form is considered amateur, since it was obtained by an amateur breeder V.U. Kapelyushny without the use of special technologies. It was first grown in the Rostov region, but it also grows in a more severe northern climate.
The Rumba variety is relatively young - less than 10 years old.
The Rumba grape was first grown in the Rostov region, but it can grow and bear fruit in more northern regions.
Rumba is a table grape variety. It has large (about 30 cm in length), slightly loose clusters weighing 800-1100 g. The color of the fruit is usually pink, less often purple. The berries are fleshy, crunchy, with a high sucrose content and a pleasant nutmeg smell.

The parameters may vary depending on the region in which the grapes are grown.
This variety does not require any special soil for planting and will grow in almost any conditions. He has no special recommendations for feeding, except that fertilizers should be laid no more often than once every 3 years. For the development of the root system of the bushes, it is recommended to place the seedlings at a distance of 3 m from each other. You need to plant grapes in a place where there will be a lot of sunlight.

Due to their high frost resistance, Rumba grapes can be planted both in spring and autumn. The main thing is that there are no frosts at night.

Rumba is an unpretentious grape variety and does not require much maintenance. But you should carefully consider the features of watering:
It is important to monitor the rate of moisture absorption by the soil, excess water will lead to rotting of the root system.
The material used to cover the grapes must completely cover the vine
