n.

Definizione

Name given to a small part of the vine shoot which rests between the leaf stalk or petiole and the shoot stem. 1

Nota

The bud contains three miniature, compressed (primordial) shoots. Normally the best developed of these shoots (from the `primary' bud) bursts at budbreak. Bourgeon is French for bud. Grapevine buds are classified as compound and fruitful; their development is complex. 2

Contesto

During their formation, buds are directly affected by the amount of sunlight to which they are exposed. Buds that develop in sunlight initiate more flowers than buds that develop in the shade. 3
