Early Daisy


The qualities of Early Daisy render the variety more than commonplace.
Its earliness commends it, the ripening period being eight or ten days
earlier than Champion or Moore Early, making it one of the very
earliest varieties. For a grape maturing at its season, it both keeps
and ships well. Early Daisy would seem to be as desirable as Hartford
or Champion. The variety originated with John Kready, Mount Joy,
Pennsylvania, in 1874, as a seedling of Hartford.

Vine vigorous, hardy, produces fair crops. Canes of medium length,
numerous, slender, reddish-brown; nodes enlarged, flattened;
tendrils continuous, bifid. Leaves small, light green; upper
surface rugose; lower surface slightly pubescent, cobwebby; lobes
wanting or faintly three; petiolar sinus deep, narrow; teeth
shallow, narrow. Flowers nearly self-sterile.

Fruit early. Clusters small to medium, often blunt at ends,
cylindrical, sometimes single-shouldered, compact; pedicel short,
slender, smooth; brush reddish, slender. Berries of medium size,
round, dull black, covered with heavy bloom, persistent; skin
tough, purplish-red pigment; flesh tough, solid, aromatic, tart at
the skin, acid at center; inferior in flavor and quality. Seeds
numerous, adherent, of average size, dark brown.
