Botanical term (monoecious) for plants that carry both male and female sexual organs, so to speak "on the same house" (plant). These can occur separately on a plant, but also as a common bisexual organ in the form of a hermaphrodite flower, as is usually the case with the cultivated vine. In contrast, there are also dioecious or unisexual plants. See also under flower, vine systematics and grapevine.

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
