in the viniculture this means the young vine germinated from a planted grape seed. Germination of a seedling can take place independently in nature or can be brought about consciously by humans. In contrast to a genetically identical one clone who at a vegetative propagation as cuttings (Seedling) arises are the seedlings resulting from generative or sexual reproduction genotypisch fundamentally different. The grapevine is extremely compared to other groups of plants (for example trees) heterozygous (split-sized) and cannot be propagated correctly by seeds (grape seeds). The berry kernels contain the paternal genes that were passed on during fertilization. For the looks and the varietal the grapes but it is completely irrelevant by which father places fertilization took place. Indeed, these correspond to 100% of the type of mother places,

Seedling - young vine plant with plant tubes and greenery in between

A seedling always shows a new combination of the parental inherited characteristics, which leads to a new one vine to lead. The up to five (rarely six) kernels in a berry can be very different game types provide. Therefore seedlings are not used for replanting vineyards, but are only in the breeding interesting new varieties. A seedling can be the product of one selfing (Self-fertilization), but also from fertilization with pollen from another vine. So one by self or pollination and then the type of grape seed germinated is called spontaneous (natural) crossing, Other names for this process are "fallen from seeds" or bloomed open (open pollinated). The picture shows a young plant in the nursery, The floor is greened and the boys shoots are with planting tubes against game damage protected. See also on the topic below blossom such as grapevine,
