Do grapes eat a lot of carbon when they are growing?

    Plants use carbon to generate organic compunds, like sugar, which they use for energy. Plants are carbon-based lifeforms, which means they use carbon as a building block for cellular structures. Any growing plant is going to consume a lot of carbon when it is growing because it needs the carbon to, essentially, “build” itself. However, the notion that grapes “eat carbon” is incorrect, because grapes are the fruit of the grape plant, and carbon is taken up by plants, in the form of the gas carbon dioxide, across the surface of plant leaves, not by the fruit.
