Black Malvoise


This variety is rather widely grown in California as an early
table-grape and might be worth trying in eastern grape regions. While
the fruit is not of the best quality, it is good. The following
description is compiled:

Vine vigorous, healthy and productive; wood long-jointed, rather
slender, light brown. Leaves of medium size, oval, evenly and
deeply five-lobed; basal sinus open, with nearly parallel sides;
upper surface smooth, almost glabrous; lower surface slightly
tomentose on the veins and veinlets. Bunches large, loose,
branching; berries large, oblong, reddish black with faint bloom;
flesh firm, juicy, crisp; flavor lacking in richness and
character; quality not high. Season early, keeping and shipping
but poorly.
