Suitability for cultivation and agronomic production
Danuta has a moderate to strong vigor and a semi-erect bearing. The shoots are long and sensitive to the wind. Therefore, it must be carefully trained and pruned long. Danuta is not very sensitive to coulure and millerandage but its berries are sometimes subject to bursting if it rains at the end of ripening.
Susceptibility to diseases and pests
Danuta is sensitive to powdery mildew, downy mildew and phomopsis. This variety is however not very susceptible to grey rot.
Technological potentiality
Danuta's bunches are very large, long and not very compact. The berries are seedless, medium in size with a not very thick skin, a simple-flavored firm pulp and an average gustative quality. When the seeds are present, they are soft and not very noticeable. Pinching out the clusters can improve the presentation. It is better that the clusters are well exposed in order to obtain good berry coloration. This variety has average storage and transport capacity.
