Want to grow organic grapes? Check out this heirloom “America!” Growth very strong. Exceptionally good flavor, skin is thin and tender, but does not crack; pulp melting, juicy, easily freeing the slender seeds; when fully ripe, very rich in sugar. Has a very distinct delicious flavor, yet not “foxy”, making a good combination market and wine grape. Juice intensely violet red. A very good port wine has been made from it without “fortifying”.
Ripens at Denison, Texas, July 20th to August 1st. Very prolific with long arm pruning and when pollenized by other varieties, as it does not thoroughly pollenize itself. Has passed through 27 degrees below zero without damage. Not attacked by mildew, rot or leaf-folder, and has given excellent results in California as a resistant graft stock for Vinifera varieties. Adapted South and North. Plant 12 to 14 feet apart. Perfect flower. Extremely disease resistant.
