Most of the vines are either experiencing bud swell (white fuzzy buds, like popcorn or mini-popcorn) or bud break (leaves). The vines with leaves include the varietals Brianna, Concord (s), Edelweiss, Frontenac, Frontenac Gris, Geneva Red, Lacrescent, Lacrosse, Leon Millot, Marechal Foch, Marquette, Mars (t), Rougeon, and St. Croix. The varietals that do not appear to have begun bud swell yet include Cabernet Franc (v), Chambourcin, Chardonel, Chardonnay (v), Gruner Veltliner (v), Jupiter (s), Lemberger (v), Neptune (s), Riesling (v), Traminette, Valvin Muscat, Vidal Blanc, and Zweigelt (v).
That the vitis Vinifera are not swelling yet is not a surprise. Also not surprising is that the varietals developed for northern states such as Minnesota and Michigan are among those varietals with leaves.
