Vitis vinifera
Grapevine Grape"vine`, n. (Bot.) A vine or climbing shrub, of the genus {Vitis}, having small green flowers and lobed leaves, and bearing the fruit called {grapes}. [1913 Webster]

Note: The common grapevine of the Old World is {Vitis vinifera}, and is a native of Central Asia. Another variety is that yielding small seedless grapes commonly called {Zante currants}. The northern {Fox grape} of the United States is the {V. Labrusca}, from which, by cultivation, has come the Isabella variety. The southern {Fox grape}, or {Muscadine}, is the {V. vulpina}. The {Frost grape} is {V. cordifolia}, which has very fragrant flowers, and ripens after the early frosts. [1913 Webster]
