||Raisin à pellicule rouge
||Good; Considering the precondition of ripening, it would be possible to intensify cultivation in less favorable hilltop exposures (up to 650 meters above sea level) and, only on sunny coasts exposed to the south, at elevated altitudes (700-750 meters above sea level).

Resistance to parasites and other adversities: all the green organs of "Mayolet" are particularly sensitive to the oge, and need special attention in the fight against disease prevention; Ripe bunches also, due to their compactness, fear the attacks of botrytis (gray mold); Even in this case, it is necessary to try to prevent the disease by performing constant controls and simple foliar thinning (after swallowing) and antibacterial treatments, but above all without forcing the productions.
