The two girls started growing 50 types of grape roots including red grapes, green grapes, and ruby grapes. The grape is just naturally suitable to climate in the south-central province of Ninh Thuan, the country's largest grape producer. However, they develop well in coastal land in Ben Tre Province.
According to the two sisters’ father, Bay Thiet, his two daughters had bought an ornamental vine on a holiday trip to grow in the  orchard. After six months, the plant bore fruits; therefore, they came up with the new thought that they will grow grape in their orchard garden.
Lately, 50 grape roots have produced about 100 kilogram per day in the first harvest. The family then decided to make grape-made products such as grape honey, wine, grape jam, and grape shaved ice for sale.
With the fruitful result, the two young girls decided to grow 200 vine roots in the land of 2,000 square meters. Moreover, they will organize farm tours for holidaymakers who want to visit their grape orchard and serve a variety of local dishes.
