European varieties are classed as having originated from the cultivar Vitis vinifera and have tight skins, wine–like flavors, high heat requirements for ripening, and are the most common grapes grown in California. Use fresh, dried, and for juices or wine. Susceptible to powdery mildew, they require regular dusting or spraying with sulfur or other mildew control. May grow successfully in very warm sites at lower elevations, and require deep, moderately fertile soils and regular pruning for high quality and production. Self-fertile.
