Confused about clones

It seems that some people refer to clones as simply specific cultivars and others mean it to suggest they’re plants arrived at through means other than selection massale.

whixh is it?

  • From the Prince of Pinot article: "The word clone is from the Greek word for twig. Clones are separate vines that are genetically identical to a mother plant. They have the same growth, habit, flavors and ripening time as the vine they come from. Clones are propagated asexually by taking cuttings or grafts from another vine. Seeds are not suitable for propagation since after pollination, new seeds are not genetically identical."

    This is how I always thought of it/learned it.

    Also, pretty cool articles on Pinot Clones:
