Senasqua








(Labrusca, Vinifera)

The vine of Senasqua lacks in vigor, hardiness, productiveness and
health. The grapes are of good quality, and when well grown are up to
the average fruits of the Labrusca-Vinifera hybrids. Unfortunately the
berries have a tendency to crack which is aggravated by the bunches
being so compact as to crowd the berries. Senasqua is one of the
latest grapes to open its buds and is, therefore, seldom injured by
late frosts. It can be recommended only for the garden for the sake
of variety. Stephen W. Underhill of Crown Point, New York, originated
Senasqua from seed of Concord pollinated by Black Prince.

Vine weak and tender, often unproductive. Canes short, few,
reddish-brown; nodes enlarged, flattened; tendrils intermittent,
long, trifid or bifid. Leaves light green, glossy, rugose; lower
surface whitish-green, pubescent; leaf usually not lobed with
terminus acute; petiolar sinus narrow; basal and lateral sinuses
shallow and narrow when present. Flowers fertile, late; stamens
upright.

Fruit a little later than Concord, keeps well. Clusters large,
broad, irregularly tapering, usually with a small, single
shoulder, very compact; pedicel thick, smooth, enlarged at point
of attachment; brush short, reddish. Berries large, round,
reddish-black, persistent, firm; skin thick, tender, cracks,
adherent, contains some wine-colored pigment; flesh green,
translucent, juicy, tender, meaty, vinous, spicy; good. Seeds
free, one to five, long, narrow, one-sided, light brown.
