A grapevine is generally characterized as a woody vine. However, within the North Dakota State University Grape Germplasm Enhancement Project, a novel determinate natural mutant, with natural self-limited growth and reproductive habit, was discovered and designated Vitis NDMutant1. The genotype resulted from self-pollination of a vine designated Vitis ND 733 (unreleased). The resulting genotype displays a determinate, shrub-like growth and reproductive habit with continuous flowering capabilities. The plant has been successfully propagated through green shoot tip cuttings as well as budding, giving rise to propagules having the same unique growth habit and demonstrating the stability of
