Growing the grapevines in soilless culture began to gather some attention as a rewarding hobby. Although cultivation of grapes in soilless culture needs a lot of care, the vines, if trained properly, can take very little space and provide early harvest when cultivated in glasshouse. The present study was conducted to investigate development of grapevine cultivars Perle de Csaba, Pembe Cekirdeksiz and Italia grown in soilless culture under controlled glasshouse conditions. The soilless culture was performed in 60 L. pots containing equal mixture of peat and perlite. The phenological dates varied among the cultivars as expected due to the alteration in genotype-specific response to a given environment. Although the studied cultivars displayed great variation in berry set (from 25.3% in Italia to 44.4% in Perle de Csaba), satisfying data were obtained in all the genotypes considering the previous literature reports. The average cluster weights were 142.3, 170.5 and 196.0 for Perle de Csaba, Pembe Çekirdeksiz and Italia, respectively. The highest yield was obtained from Italia (1489.6 g vine-1) and was followed by Perle de Csaba (1038.8 g vine-1). However, commercial maturity date of Perle de Csaba was 23 days earlier than that of Italia. Therefore, Perle de Csaba may be considered to cultivate in soilless culture under glasshouse or greenhouse condition, although Italia also may be another option for high yield. The present study is anticipated to be model for indoor cultivation of grapevines with soilless culture.
