Vitis berlandieri

American wild grape, which was led under this name until the 1990s as a separate species. It was created in 1880 by the French botanist Jules Émile Planchon (1823-1888). He named it after the Swiss biologist Jean-Louis Berlandier (1805-1851), who first described and cataloged it in 1834. Today the vine is called Vitis cinerea var. Helleri as one of the five varieties of the species Vitis cinerea guided. In many sources, however, this is not yet understood, so that the name Vitis berlandieri is still often mentioned.
