Abstract

Description and specifications of a new and distinct grapevine cultivar named ‘Hope’ which originated from a hand-pollinated cross of A-1562 (non-patented, non-released breeding genotype)×A-1704 (non-patented, non-released breeding genotype). This new grapevine cultivar can be distinguished by its very tight large clusters, fruity flavor, high yields, medium vigor, and healthy plant.

Description

Latin name: Vitis labrusca L.×Vitis vinifera L.

Varietal denomination: ‘Hope’.

BACKGROUND

The new and distinct cultivar of grape named ‘Hope’ is described herein. The new cultivar originated from a hand-pollinated cross of A-1562 (female parent) and A-1704 (male parent) made in 1985. The seedlings fruited in the summer of 1986 in a vineyard near Clarksville, Ark. and one was selected for its seedless, green berries with good flavor. The fruit grows in tight clusters, the vines have medium vigor and the plants are very productive and healthy.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The new and distinct cultivar of grapevine originated from a hand-pollinated cross of A-1562 (non-patented, non-released breeding genotype; female parent)×A-1704 (non-patented, non-released breeding genotype; male parent) made in 1985 near Clarksville, Ark. The instant cultivar is a hybrid of Vitis labrusca L. and Vitis vinifera L. The seeds resulting from this controlled hybridization were germinated in a greenhouse during the winter of 1985-86. Resulting seedlings were planted in the spring of 1986 in a vineyard near Clarksville, Ark. The seedlings fruited in the summer of 1986 and one seedling, designated Arkansas Selection 2053, was selected for its seedless, green berries with a fruity flavor, tight clusters, medium vigor, and productive and healthy plant.

During late 1986 and early 1987, the original plant selection was propagated asexually at the above-noted location, by rooting hardwood cuttings and a test planting of three vines was established. In all propagations hardwood cuttings were used and the instant cultivar rooted readily from hardwood cuttings. All propagules (resulting plants) of the instant cultivar have been observed to be true to type in that during all asexual multiplication, the vegetative and fruit characteristics of the original plant have been maintained. All vines planted from hardwood cutting propagation fruited in the second or third season of growth in the vineyard after planting.

Vines of the new cultivar have medium vigor, with a procumbent growth habit characteristic of V. labrusca. It has produced well as own-rooted plants in all testing and has not been evaluated on any rootstocks. Hardiness of the vines has been very good, with no winter injury to the vines to 5° F. in the most severe winters at the Arkansas test site.

The new cultivar is moderately resistant to powdery mildew (Erysiphe necator Schw. (syns. Uncinula necator (Schw.) Burr., E. tuckeri Berk., U. americana Howe, and U. spiralis Berk. & Curt; anamorph Oidium tuckeri Berk.), downy mildew (Plasmopora viticola Berl. & Tomi.), and anthrancnose (Elsinoe ampelina (d. By.) Sher), but susceptible to black rot (Guignardia bidwellii (Ell.) V. & R.). Fungal diseases can be controlled by the use of available fungicides.

The new cultivar ripens its fruit in the mid- to late-season, average August 18. The fruit is green in color at early maturity. It is evenly colored within the cluster. The fruit shape is oval. Fruit skins are moderately thick and adhere to the flesh (has a non-slipskin texture). The berries are medium-small (ca. 3.4 g). The flavor is fruity, and of a V. labrusca character. Solids concentration of the juice at fruit maturity averages 20% with medium acidity. The fruit is of the stenospermocarpic type of seedlessness and can contain 1-2 small, soft vestigial seed traces that are not noticeable when eaten. Fruit clusters, borne usually one to two per shoot, are large, and tightly filled with an average weight of 310 g. The fruit clusters are good sized and vines are very productive.

The new cultivar has been named the ‘Hope’ cultivar.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying photographs show typical specimens of the new variety at 19 years of age in color as nearly true as it is reasonably possible to make in a color illustration of this character.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW CULTIVAR

‘Hope’ differs from its female parent A-1562 in that it has tighter clusters, is seedless, and green instead of blue/black fruit color. ‘Hope’ differs from it male parent A-1704 as this parent has much smaller clusters.

The following is a detailed description of the botanical and pomological characteristics of the subject grapevine. Color data are presented in Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart designations, 1986 version, second edition.

Where dimensions, sizes, colors and other characteristics are given, it is to be understood that such characteristics are approximations of averages set forth as accurately as practicable.

The descriptions reported herein are from specimens grown near Clarksville, Ark. Vines used for measurement were irrigated using trickle (drip) irrigation. The data collection was from vines that were 15 years old.

      • Size.—Medium.
      • Growth.—Moderately vigorous.
