Flora is the name of two unrelated varieties of grape, one white and one red, both of United States origin.

White Flora[edit]

The white Flora is a California wine grape. It is a crossing of Semillon and Gewürztraminer, both Vitis vinifera varieties, and it was created in 1938 by Harold P. Olmo at the California Agricultural Experiment Station.[1][2]

Red Flora[edit]

The red Flora is an interspecific hybrid between V. vinifera and Vitis labrusca, and it was created in 1850 by A. M. Spangler.[3]
