c. n.


A dormant bud, usually hidden or buried in the wood, which is over one year old and which may remain dormant indefinitely unless the vine suffers a major injury that makes it necessary to produce new shoots. 1


Depending on genetic and environmental factors, lateral buds may differentiate into shoots during the year they are produced. More commonly the may remain dormant, becoming latent buds. 2


Late frosts and hailstorms occurring in the spring often produce the same effects as shoot removal by topping, but latent bud development is disorganized, resulting in bushy vegetation. 3
