Vitis lincecumii

One of the approximately 30 American species or wild grapevines native to the southeastern United States of America, especially in the states of Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. Trivial synonyms are Big Summer Grape, Pine Wood Grape, Post Oak Grape, Sand Gra pe, South Western Aestivalis, Turkey Grape and Vine Wood Grape. Botanical synonyms are Vitis lincecumii Buckley, Vitis lincecumii var. Lactea small and Vitis lincecumii var. Glauco Munson. The vine has good resistance to phylloxera. There is a close resemblance to the species Vitis aestivalis, but the species has slightly larger berries and seeds. The researcher U.T. Waterfall made the suggestion in his work "Keys to the Flora of Oklahoma" that a distinction between the two species should be omitted. This was complied with and one of the three varieties of Vitis aestivalis is now called Vitis aestivalis var. lincecumii. The immigrant Swiss grapevine breeder Hermann Jaeger (1844-1895) used it for many of his new varieties. Vine varieties with Lincecumii genes include America, Cayuga White, Chambourcin, Chancellor, Gloire de Seibel, Kiowa, Longworth, Melody, Munson, Plantet (pictured), Seyval Blanc, Ten Dollar Prize, St. Pepin, Vidal Blanc and Waubeck.
