Vitis cinerea var. helleri

One of the five varieties of the American species Vitis cinerea (one of the 30 American species or wild vines). It used to be listed as a separate species under the name Vitis berlandieri, which is still used in many sources. It was re-described in 1880 by the French botanist and phylloxera discoverer Jules Émile Planchon (1823-1888). He named it after the Swiss biologist Jean Louis Berlandier (1805-1851), who first described and catalogued this vine in 1834 in Bexar County, Texas. Trivial synonyms are Fall Grape, Mountain Grape, Spanish Grape, Sweet Grape, Uva Cimaronna; Vitis Aestivalis Gray, Vitis Aestivalis Wright and Winter Grape. Botanical synonyms or old names are Vitis aestivalis var. monticola Engelmann, Vitis montana Buckl., Vitis monticola Durand and Vitis monticola Mill.
