Suitability for cultivation and agronomic production
Roditis is a vigorous and productive variety with an erect bearing. It is drought tolerant. It is best if it is grown onto light and limestone soils. If Roditis is cultivated onto rich and deep soils, it will give high yields. This variety may sometimes be suscpetible to coulure or millerandage.
Susceptibility to diseases and pests
Roditis is very sensitive to downy mildew, a little less to powdery mildew and Phomopsis.
Technological potentiality
Roditis's bunches are medium to large in size and moderately compact. The berries are also medium to large, with a simple flavor, a moderately thick skin and a juicy pulp. The berries color is related to the yields, the higher they are, the greener the berries will be. Roditis' wines are balanced but not very suitable for ageing. This variety's typical aromas are peach, apricot, tropical fruits, apple and banana.
