Dying vinesFunny you should ask; I have the same problem here in New Hampshire: beautiful fruit on a white, shriveled, even moldy vine. It seems that the problem may be to much water—and that's not necessarily your fault. It could have been too much rain and too warm conditions. It also may be a symptom of bad insects. If the vines are bad or going bad, they will not be able to deliver moisture to the fruit and in fact may decay further and more quickly if you water. Keep an eye on the fruit. Pick it and enjoy it in whatever way you can: on display, in a pie, whatever. It's part of the experience. Next season consider crop rotation or amending your soil. Hope this helps.
