Definizione

A cluster of flowers arising from the main stem axis or peduncle. 1

Nota

The grapevine inflorescence is a complex, highly modified branch system containing reduced shoots and flowers. The complete branch system is called the rachis. It is composed of a basal stem (the peduncle), two main branches (the inner and outer lateral arms) and various subbranches terminating in pedicels. Pedicels give rise to individual flowers. 2

Contesto

The shoots proceed through debourrement, the period between bud break and the appearance of the first inflorescence (flower cluster). During this time, the shoots usually grow about 10 inches (25 cm). 3
