A classical pedigree represents the descendants of a person or other living being and is part of genealogy (genealogy). In this form the descent "of all" varieties or even less represent is impossible and fails for several reasons. The diplomologist Andreas Young note the following: There are many individual Parent-offspring relationships but no real pedigrees, as often only the mother is clear and the father is missing, as with the numerous seedlings of the Gouais blanc (White Heunisch). Every seed in a berry is in principle a potential new grape variety, but it only becomes this when the nucleus gets into the soil, germinates there and then grows into a vine. Within a berry with 5 to 6 seeds, the fathers can be 5 to 6 varieties, depending on what pollen at the blossom was used.
Pedigree trees also simulate a temporal sequence and spatial limitation, which does not have to be the case with grape varieties. The descendants of the Gouais Blanc may have originated more or less at the same time in a place of a few grapes or even in the course of several thousand years in several places. Uncles and aunts can be with the mother for example in the antiquity out Transcaucasia while the children have spontaneously sprouted from seeds at the new planting location of the mother variety. There are no generational successions of grape varieties, such as mammals or humans, as they are potentially immortal and can often be cultivated in various places and over long periods of time. Spontaneous children of these varieties could be in Australia, America, South Africa and Europe arise, crossed with what delivered pollen in the environment.
The grandchildren in the Mixed sentence can dust the grandmother and aunt, so that a kind of incest arises. As long as the children and grandchildren are planted in the mixed set, there can be a lot of cross-stuff each with each. Dozens of fathers, as pollen donors in mixed sets, can fertilize the single flowers of a single vine. When these seeds are sown, masses of step-siblings with a mother and many fathers and vice versa arise. The fathers of one are the mothers of the other. The cultivated vines are yes hermaphrodite, And then it gets complicated with the pedigrees. One kind of mother, several fathers, the father of one is the mother of the other, all at the same time during a week of flowering. Or the same game with the same parents, but spread over thousands of years. Most of the cultivars cultivated in Western Europe today go to a relatively small group of so-called leading varieties such as Gouais blanc. Pinot and Traminer as well as their spontaneous intersections back. See also a list of relevant keywords below grapevine,
