Grape (Vitisvinifera L.) is one of the most commercially important crops of the world and is fairly good source of minerals like calcium, phosphorous, iron and vitamins like B1 and B2. Its juice is mild, laxative and acts as stimulant for kidneys. It is one of the most ancient crops known to man. Its association with man is older than that of wheat and rice. It is known since 7000 B.C. and evidence of its culture in Egypt during 4000- 3000 B.C. is available. The primary center of origin for grape is supposed to be Armenia near the Black and Caspian seas in Russia. The mention of grape has been made by Charaka and Sushruta in their medical treatises written in the first century A.D. in India, but the exact picture of its cultivation during this period is not known. Evidence of its introduction to India in 1300 AD by Mughal invaders is available (Veerandra et al, 2015).
