TUMPAT: The belief that a cold climate is best suited for growing grapes has been proven wrong by Wan Yusoff Abdul Rahman, 37, who has been cultivating them in tropical Malaysia for two years.

The former graphic artist said the 60 grapevines planted around his house in Kampung Belukar, Wakaf Bharu near here can yield up to one tonne of fruit per month.

Anyone who visits his residence will be mesmerised by the range of colours of his grapes from varieties like Ninel, Jupiter and Dixon.

“Most of the varieties come from Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Korea. What is surprising is that they grow well here and are nearly as sweet,” he said of his foray into grape growing which started as a research and development project.

“There is no denying that people are attracted to my house because they want to see and taste the grapes.
