Cultivar

This artificial word is derived from "cultivated variety". It is used mainly among botanists for a grape variety cultivated by humans as opposed to wild gra pevines. In the strict sense, all present-day grape varieties are cultivars. However, this is only generally used as a term for grape variety in South Africa. See also under vine systematics and variety.
