Grapebreeders HomePage

*Soeren Larsen, Grapebreeders Website author Lon J. Rombough, Grapebreeders
mailing list founder *

These resources are no longer maintained. The mailing list at ibiblio and
at Google groups are locked up so there is no way to download those message
I am downloading the entire Grapebreders website now so as to have it in
case any Nafex people need it.

*Updated 9 - Apr -2006 * *Best view in 1280 x 1024*

*Welcome to Grapebreeders, the web site of the Grape Breeders discussion
The Grape Breeders discussion list was started on in 2002, as a
means for anyone interested in the breeding of grape varieties to contact
each other and exchange ideas. Members range from novices who want to learn
how to breed grapes, to experienced private breeders as well as university
and other professional breeders. As the list grew, the members began to
contribute an amazing collection of resources, including breeding records
from private and university breeding programs, historical documents related
to grapes and grape breeding, their own personal breeding experiences, and
more. With so much material, it was apparent the group needed a website not
just to store the material, but to make it readily available as a resource.
After a couple of false starts, this website was started in December of
2005 and it is hoped it can be a repository of knowledge for anyone with an
interest in breeding wine, table, and juice grapes and creating new
varieties to extend the range and adaptibility of grape growing.

*The Grape Breeders discussion list *itself, while accessible only to
members, is open to anyone with a genuine interest in breeding new grapes.
To join the discussion list, go to and follow the
instructions for signing up. You will have several options for receiving
mail. The default setting is to get letters from members as they are sent.
You can also set your subscription to "digest" to get letters in large
batches, or "no mail" and receive none, but be able to go to the website
and read and reply to mail there. There is no cost for joining, and lots of
benefits in sharing with an excellent group of grape breeders.

Holding your mouse on a site, you will get you a pop-up with name, location

during the past 20 years ( from ). Now the info from here
is limited to a 12 months temperature index, meaning that I could miss up
to ½ a month GDD in spring and ½ a month in the other end of the warm GDD
season. So you probably have to add 100-200 GDD in worst case.
