Early likovrisi: the new white very early table grape seedless and resistant variety


Context and purpose of the study – This paper presents is the create, the study and ampelographic description the new «Early Likovrisi», that was created (2014) in Greece by Pantelis Zamanidis.  

Material and methods – The variety created by crossing with the hybridization method of the varieties “Talisman” and “Florina”. “Early Likovrisi” is a cross-breeding between American, Europeanand Far East (V. Amurensis).  

Results – The table grape variety is a seedless, early-maturing, and resistant. The time between budburst and grape maturity is 126-135 days. The variety is very strong with large shoots growth (2.1 – 3.0 m). The growth of shoots is higher over 95%. The percentage of the fruitful shoots is greater than 90%. The yield is high more than 30–40 t / ha. The average weight of the cluster is 800 gIt has high resistance to fungal diseases, insects, high resistance to low temperatures, high resistance to drought and tolerant in Phylloxera compared to other varieties of Vitisvinifera.. The shoot and the tip of the young shoot are green-colored and hairless. The mature leaf is medium size, symmetrical, and five hardlobs. The flowers are hermaphrodite. The cluster is high sized, conical, winged and of medium density. The berry is big – average berry weight 7 gr – with a sort elliptical shape, green-yellow color, and medium skin. The taste of the berry pulp is characteristic of the «Early Likovrisi» variety. The content of sugar is high. Berry seeds are present but not developed. The «Early Likovrisi» variety is suitable for table grape production.  Can be used in the genetic improvement of Vitis viniferavarieties as a resistance donor, for fungal diseases, insects and low temperature

A comprehensive and accurate annotation for the grapevine T2T genome 

Addressing the opportunities and challenges of genomics methods in grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) requires the development of a comprehensive and accurate reference genome and annotation. We aimed to create a new gene annotation for the PN40024 grapevine reference genome by integrating the highly accurate and complete T2T assembly and the manually curated PN40024.v4 annotation. Here, we present a novel workflow to enhance the annotation of the T2T genome by incorporating past community input found in PN40024.v4. The pipeline’s containerization will improve the workflow’s reproducibility and flexibility, facilitating its inclusion as a shared workflow on the Grapedia portal, the grapevine genomics encyclopedia.

Impact of the ‘Pinot’-family on early ripening in cool climate viticulture varieties

‘Pinot Precoce Noir’ (PPN) is an early ripening clone of ‘Pinot Noir’ (PN). The phenological differentiation is visible by an about two weeks earlier onset of veraison. It was found that the early veraison locus Ver1 on chromosome 16, previously identified in ‘Calardis Musqué’, originated from PPN. A highly correlated SSR marker, namely GF16-Ver1, was developed and tested for its ability to molecularly differentiate between PPN and PN as well as its potential to trace individual descendants.

Rootstock impact on foliar symptom expression of esca on Vitis vinifera cv. Cabernet-Sauvignon

Trunk diseases and esca in particular, represent a major threat to the sustainability of the vineyards. The percentages of unproductive vines in a plot could vary from 4% to over 20 % depending on local conditions and vintages.
