Generally, if you are picking table grapes they are harvested in bunches, you will not be picking single grapes. You have to harvest table grapes with snippers. The grape vines are easily hurt and can be damaged during picking if you are not careful. If grape bunches are torn from the vine it can cause an infection of the vine. For table grape picking be sure to call ahead to see if you need to bring your own pointed nose scissors or if the location provides them.
