Transgenic grapes? Not going to happen anytime soon. Due to the priority of "tradition" in winemaking, the barrier of entry is much higher.

Guy Barter, of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), said it was looking at the plant with "real interest".

Mr Barter said many of these plants - created by a technique known as grafting - had been created before but taste had previously been a problem.

Bob Carey hat sich vor Jahren aus Spaß im rosa Tutu abgelichtet. Mittlerweile ist daraus eine Serie geworden, die auch noch was gutes tut - Erlöse gehen an gemeinnützigen Einrichtungen, die Frauen mit Brustkrebs helfen und dessen Heilung erforschen.
Ich präsentiere: The Tutu Project!
