Perfection








(Labrusca, Bourquiniana, Vinifera)

Perfection is a seedling of Delaware, which it greatly resembles but
does not equal in fruit; its fruits being hardly as high in quality,
do not keep as well, shrivel more before ripening, and shell more
readily. In its vine characters, it is much more like a Labrusca than
Delaware, suggesting that it is a Delaware cross. In the Southwest,
Perfection is considered a valuable early red grape. J. Stayman,
Leavenworth, Kansas, grew Perfection from seed of Delaware; it was
sent out for testing about 1890.

Vine vigorous, healthy, injured in severe winters, productive.
Canes of medium length and number, slender; nodes enlarged,
flattened; internodes short; tendrils intermittent, trifid or
bifid. Leaves healthy, medium in size; upper surface light green;
lower surface grayish-white with a tinge of bronze, heavily
pubescent; lobes wanting or three to five; petiolar sinus shallow,
wide; serration shallow. Flowers self-fertile or nearly so, open
in mid-season; stamens upright.

Fruit early. Clusters usually single-shouldered, compact; pedicel
short, slender, smooth; brush short, yellow. Berries small, round,
red but less brilliant than Delaware with faint bloom, inclined to
drop from pedicel, soft; skin thin, free from astringency; flesh
medium in juiciness and tenderness, vinous, mild, sweet; good in
quality. Seeds adherent, numerous, small, often with an enlarged
neck.
