  A  vine  or  climbing  shrub,  of  the  genus  {Vitis},  having  small 
  green  flowers  and  lobed  leaves,  and  bearing  the  fruit  called 
  {grapes}. 
 
  Note:  The  common  grapevine  of  the  Old  World  is  {Vitis 
  vinifera},  and  is  a  native  of  Central  Asia.  Another 
  variety  is  that  yielding  small  seedless  grapes  commonly 
  called  {Zante  currants}.  The  northern  {Fox  grape}  of 
  the  United  States  is  the  {V.  Labrusca},  from  which  by 
  cultivation,  has  come  the  Isabella  variety.  The 
  southern  {Fox  grape},  or  {Muscadine},  is  the  {V. 
  vulpina}.  The  {Frost  grape}  is  {V.  cordifolia},  which 
  has  very  fragrant  flowers,  and  ripens  after  the  early 
  frosts.
