Description
The Office of Postal Service of Korea releases a new stamp featuring Vitis amurensis Ruprecht (wild grapes), on September 10, 2001 to replace the current 30-won "White Magnolia" Stamp, which has been used since May 24, 1993. The release is in accordance with a scheme to regularly introduce new definitive stamps in place of old ones.

The Vitis amurensis Ruprecht is a deciduous vine plant of the grape family. Also called "mountain grapes," this vine grows autogenously in forests teeming at the foot of mountains of between valleys at high altitudes of 100 to 1,650 meters above sea level. It can be found throughout Japan, China and Korea. Blossoming many small, yellow-green flowers around June, it has tendrils that grow beneath flower spikes and could stretch as long as 10 meters, with grains at 8 mm in diameter.
