The following image combines before and after pictures
of a grape vine in Tucson, Arizona. The picture on the left was
taken on May 6, 2008; the same day that eight ounces of Sea-Crop was applied around the
base of the grape vine in the picture. The picture on the right was
taken of the same grape vine two weeks later.
The picture below is a
comparison of the size of the largest isolated leaf from the left
picture above and the largest isolated leaf from the picture on the
right above. Note that the wire rectangles in the picture are two
inches high by four inches wide.
This means that the smaller leaf on the left is about five inches in
diameter and the larger ORMUS leaf on the right is a bit more than ten
inches in diameter.
Here is a picture of a similar leaf taken from the grape vine after
The picture above was taken of a grape leaf immediately after it was
picked on May 16, 2008. The white paper beneath the leaf is ten inches
The leaf in the picture above was sent to me (Barry) on May 17. I
finally got around to taking the following picture of it on May 25,
I also weighed the grape leaf
in the picture above. It weighed 9.5 grams. I don't have any weight of
the smaller leaf to compare this to but I have noticed that a leaf that
is twice as long weighs about four times as much.
