Title: Development of a New Wine Grape Cultivar 'Cheongpung'
Authors: Young Sik Park, Jae Yun Heo, Nam Yong Um, Dae Ki Hong, and Sung Min Park
A new grape cultivar, 'Cheongpung', was bred from a cross between KW-03 and KW-10 that was selected among 155 genetic resources of Korean native Vitis amurensis Rupr. at Gangwondo Agricultural Research and Extension Services. The cross was made in 1999, and 'Cheongpung' was finally selected in 2009 after an extensive three-year evaluation of fruit and vine characteristics. Bud burst, full bloom, and fruit maturity dates of 'Cheongpung' are April 29, June 10, and September 20, respectively. It is a mid-late season cultivar. 'Cheongpung' grows vigorously and is resistant to downy mildew and gray mold. The major fruit characteristics of 'Cheongpung' are a distinctive aroma, high fruit quality and functionality. It is therefore expected that 'Cheongpung' can be used for wine production or as a genetic resource to develop better Korean wine grape cultivars.
