grape vines

gloucestershire,gloucester, United Kingdom Gb

my black hamberg is growing fast 3rd year ihave 2 branches coming off main trunk in a T with plenty of small bunches of small grapes should i cut the small branches off below whitch also has small fruit on them forming to make a stronger trunk.

On plant bigalfie



its a matter of what looks right to you and the space you have for it. It will end up with more than two stems thats all. Black hamberg is the grape i have its nice isnt it?

Yes I'd cut them off and allow the vine to focus on growing from just the two main branches - otherwise you risk a lot of small bunches of grapes rather than a few good size ones.
