Chasselas Rose


Chasselas Rose is very similar to Chasselas Golden, differing chiefly
in smaller bunch and berry and slightly different flavor which is
possibly better. It is a standard sort in California and should be
planted in the East where the culture of Viniferas is attempted. The
description is made from fruit grown at Geneva, New York:

Vine of medium vigor, productive. Opening leaves tinged with red
on both surfaces, mature leaves small, round; upper surface medium
green, somewhat dull, smooth; lower surface glabrous; lobes three;
basal sinus medium in depth and of variable width; lateral sinus
deep, narrow; teeth shallow, wide, dentate. Flowers appear late;
stamens upright.

Fruit ripens the second week in October and is a good keeper
though it loses its flavor in storage; clusters above and below
medium, long, tapering to cylindrical, compact; berries medium in
size, roundish-oval, light red changed to violet-red by the bloom;
skin thin, astringent, juicy, tender, sweet, mild; quality good.
