The Romans called it labrusca a version of the Latin word labrun which means edge or border and ruscum meaning plant.
One reason they call this grape this name is it grows along the edge of the field. This account for why the grape farmer trained the grapevine to climb a poplar tree.
Some of the reasons for this are: to prevent fungi, ensure it received the right amount of humidity, sunshine and guide it against adverse weather.
The end result of such process is to get bumper yield. This grapefruit is celebrated for giving high yield in wine production.
The farmer of these grapes takes great precaution to ensure the grape is matured and free from fungi that can affect the taste.
