Means "from two sources" or "created by mixing" or colloquially (sometimes pejorative) also Mischling, Bastard or Blendling. In the natural scientific linguistic usage it is understood as a living being (plant, animal), which through crossing originated from parents of different breeding lines (genus = genus or species = species). Spontaneously formed in nature without human intervention crosses are called especially in plants as natural hybrids. In viticulture, hybrids are understood to mean only the crossing results between different species or genera. Strictly speaking, crosses of the same species are already hybrids (intraspecific = within the species). As a rule, however, this is not interpreted in this way, but understood as hybrids only interspecific or intergeneric crosses.
In the case of plants, this does not look as spectacular as in animals and is not directly recognizable even to experts. Quite different is the case with hybrids in the animal world, the most well-known examples are mules (donkey mare x horse stallion), mule (horse mare x donkey stallion) and liger (male lion x female tiger).

Hybrids in the viticultural sense are crosses of two different species. At first crossing one speaks of primary hybrids. As a rule, hybrids with American genes (eg Vitis cinerea, Vitis labrusca, Vitis riparia etc.) with the desired properties are already crossed with European cultivars (Vitis vinifera) in new breeds. The result is secondary hybrids. Most of the partially reblaus- and mushroom-resistant varieties were created towards the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. Many own the intrusive Foxton What disqualifies her, at least in Europe, for wine making. These varieties created in the United States are called American hybrids, even though European genes are included as well. These are z. B. Agawam. albania. Alden. America. Blanc Du Bois.

The sometimes complex crossbred products of European breeders of the late 19th and early 20th century are referred to as French hybrids, because especially in France but also in Spain, Hungary and Russia was tried, the problem of bereavement due to the breeding defoliate resistant hybrid varieties for winegrowing. Of course, American species had to be included. Valuable help was provided by, among others, the US botanist Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913) re documents, as well as the breeder Hermann, immigrated from Switzerland to Missouri Hunter (1844-1895) regarding American hybrids, which were then used to cross European varieties.
