In this article:

Some growth responses of the variety Muscat Gordo Blanco, when maintained for up to 3 months in growth cabinets using combinations of three temperatures and three light intensities, have been described.

It was not known whether the response of Gordo was typical of the cultivated varieties of Vitis vinfera. In order to obtain some information on this question, four additional varieties have now been maintained under a range of temperature and light intensity, and some growth parameters of all five varieties are compared in this paper.

Varieties investigated were Muscat Gordo Blanco, Rhine Riesling, Shiraz, Ohanez, and Sultana. In response to changes in light intensity, all five varieties behaved similarly regardless of the parameter measured. In response to changes in temperature, there were some varietal differences.
