in the viniculture this includes the young vine sprouted from an implanted grape seed. The germination of a seedling can be done in an independent way in nature or be brought about consciously by humans. Unlike a genetically identical clone who at one vegetative propagation when cuttings (Seedling) are the seedlings resulting from generative or sexual reproduction genotypisch basically different. The grapevine stands out in comparison to other plant groups (for example trees) as extreme heterozygous (spalterbig) and can not be propagated using seeds (grape seeds). The berry kernels carry the paternal genes handed over at fertilization. For the look and the varietal the grapes but it is completely irrelevant, by which father places the fertilization took place. In fact, they are 100% independent of the nature of the product mother places,

Seedling - young vine plantation with planting tubes and greening in between

A seedling always has a recombination of the parental inherited traits, thus becoming a new one vine to lead. The up to five (rarely six) cores in a berry can be very different game types provide. Therefore, seedlings are not used for the repopulation of vineyards, but are only in the breeding interesting new varieties. A seedling can be the product of a selfing (Self-pollination), but also due to pollination with pollen from another vine. Such by self or pollination and then by sprouting the grape seed resulting variety is called spontaneous (natural) crossing, Other names for this process are "dropped from seeds" or openly bloomed (open pollinated). The picture shows a Junganlage in the nursery, The floor is greened and the boys shoots are with planting tubes against game damage protected. See also the topic under blossom such as grapevine,
