Vitis californica, Benth. Fig. 3962. A vigorous species, tall-climbing on trees but making bushy clumps when not finding support, the nodes large and diaphragms rather thin: lvs. mostly round-reniform (the broader ones the shape of a horse's hoof-print), rather thin, either glabrous and glossy or (more commonly) cottony-canescent until half grown and usually remaining plainly pubescent below, the sinus ranging from very narrow and deep to broad and open, the margins varying (on the same vine) from finely blunt-toothed to coarsely scallop-toothed (the latter a characteristic feature), the upper portion of the blade either perfectly continuous and rounded or sometimes indistinctly 3-lobed and terminating in a very short apex: bunches medium, mostly long-peduncled and forked, the numerous small berries glaucous-white, seedy and dry but of fair flavor; seed large (1/4-5/16 in. long), prominently pyriform. Along streams in Cent. and N. Calif. and S. Ore.—Lvs. becoming handsomely colored and mottled in autumn. Very susceptible to mildew.
