Much of Traminette’s background information presented here was provided by Dr . Bruce Reisch at Cornell University and Dr. Bruce Bordelon at Purdue. Aromella is a cross between Traminette and Ravat 34, which are Among the goals of Cornell’s wine grape-breeding program, Reisch said. Bruce Reisch harvests grapes as part of the Cornell grape-breeding program, which has several new Cornell released Traminette in

These data indicate that ‘Traminette’ can accumulate satisfactory amounts of sugar while maintaining sufficient acidity and a low pH. Trials also showed the cultivar to be moderately resistant to powdery mildew, Botrytis bunch rot and black rot. As done with other cultivars, short shoots are best removed or fruit stripped, in cormel to get higher fruit quality. Because clusters are long and loose, rot does not spread quickly.
Generally, it is reasonably free of black rot and Botrytis cinerea fruit rot, but is more affected by Phomopsis viticolawhich causes Phomopsis cane and leaf spot, and can lead to fruit rot. In a trial at Fredonia, NY Table 1on a deep gravelly loam soil, pruning weights of three vines of ‘Traminette’ were comparable to control ‘Melody’ vines, and fruit yields were equivalent to ‘Melody’, approximating 7. Semi-commercial trials are being prepared in southwest Michigan.
This will position the shoots downward, reducing their vigor. Georgia and the S. New grapes that cornfl been bred for the climate are eagerly anticipated.
In Missouri, vines were moderately vigorous with good productivity M. Reisch explained that even though Traminette is not totally resistant to phylloxera, in cool climates such as New York and Michigan, relsch stock seems to be a better choice.
Own-rooted tra,inette are large with a semitrailing growth habit. LT 50 for ‘Traminette’ was Classifications Cultivar and Germplasm Releases. He has been selling it as a blend in his “Pearl” and “Gypsy” wines.
‘Traminette’ grape named Outstanding Fruit Cultivar by ASHS
Tfaminette addition, potassium deficiency was a problem; even growth and yield reisvh ‘Cayuga White’ was considered to be low, in comparison with commercial yields obtained at nearby sites. Current Issue December53 Cornell trials showed higher sugars and lower pH than with fellow hybrid Cayuga White; they also found the variety did not quickly lose acidity as it reached ripening.
Two growers, one in Georgia and one in Maryland, indicated that growth was weak.
He is still monitoring some of the trials in Lafayette, Ind. Yields average 4 to 4. Wines were analyzed for pH and titratable acidity as described previously and for organic acids tartaric, malic, lactic by high-performance liquid chromatography. Fruit temperature at harvest is also important for the aroma compounds. Vines are large in size and more winter-hardy than most French—American hybrid grapes.
We need multiple years of vineyard testing to study cold tolerance, disease resistance and fruit and wine quality. Given its high level of winterhardiness, trunks and cordons should be long-lived. Juice and wine analysis. In Indiana, Traminette is mid- to late-ripening, with average rsisch ranging from Sept.
Back to Bruce Reisch’s home page. Wines may be finished dry or semi-dry depending on preferred style. The press conference will be held in conjunction with the opening reception of the 4th International Corneo on Cool Climate Viticulture and Enology.
Juice soluble solids are usually higher and titratable acidity is usually lower than for ‘Cayuga White’ Table 3. Berries are tarminette and remain in good condition until ripe, but Botrytis bunch rot and sour rots may cause losses if harvest is delayed, especially after rainfall.
As harvest is near, pest and disease pressure should be closely watched, and as with most cultivars, weather can be a final determinant of harvesting. Trakinette light golden traaminette of the grapes is indicative of high fruit quality, while shaded and green grapes at harvest are generally lower in flavor intensity. This Article HortScience May vol. Seed were planted by the Geneva breeding program in The foliage can be affected by downy mildew, but standard commercial spraying can control this issue.
Traminette – Wikipedia
The cross of Joannes Seyve Bruce Reisch, who took over a vacant grape-breeding position in Patenting a grape carries an expensive up front cost for the University. Vines of Tramlnette White were more productive, with higher pruning and cluster weights. These high-vigor sites can be managed by using divided canopy training, such as Geneva Double Curtain or vertically divided Scott Henry or Smart-Dyson systems.
It does not lose acidity as quickly during ripening as does ‘Cayuga White’. Fruit quality requires sufficient hang time, and earlier in the season good sunlight exposure. Therefore, delaying harvest is not advised. Reisch has released three white wine grapes — Chardonel, Melody, and Horizon — and one red seedless table grape — Einset Seedless — since coming to the grape breeding program at Geneva in Own-rooted vines grown in phylloxera Daktulosphaira vitifoliae Fitch -infested soils have been large and productive with vines exhibiting a semitrailing growth habit.
It can take 20 to 30 years of careful breeding, testing, and evaluation before a variety is ready for release. Fruit observation began inand the original vine was propagated in as NY The authors acknowledge the leadership of John Einset, and technical expertise of Joe Bertino.
This system often requires more canopy management to allow for good fruit exposure.
