selfing

Designation for during the blossom self-pollination of a plant with its own pollens, which in turn leads to self-pollination (in practice, however, the two terms are often not properly mutually used as a synonym). The cultivated vine has mostly hermaphrodite, The male and female organs are in one flower bud united. Significant by this fact occurs in cultured vines mostly a self-fertilization. The process within the hermaphrodite (autogamous) or between two flowers of the same genus (later grape) is called self-fertilization in the narrower sense. Between flowers of two plants of a vine one calls this self-fertilization in a broader sense (geitonogam).
