The person Michael Striem

More about Michael

With Professor Bruce Reisch


Bruce and I (with our families) became best friends. The Reisch Family spent a Sabbatical here in Israel, and few years later the Striem family spent a Postdoctoral stay in Geneva, NY.

At Sun World's R&D center we had many visitors interested in the renowned 'embryo rescue' procedure.

Serving as the company's grape breeder, in the picture I describe the process of extracting small embryos from seed traces, to germinate and grow into seedlings.

My job was to select among thousands of seedlings the candidates for new seedless table grape varieties.

My personal life

Since my childhood the family is an important unit. My parents and grand mothers showed us the way to see the full part of the cup.

My journey wasn't easy.  Creativity and imagination helped me thrive. My dedication to work and motivation to enjoy what I am doing led me to exceptional projects and experiences.

Take a moment to explore my portfolio below, which includes a combination of collaborations and side projects. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to learn more.

Agriculture, environment teaching

As a certified science teacher I had a lot of fun to work with the kids in the school's vegetable garden. Here I demonstrated to the students how to make a simple rain-gauge
