Hopkins Early Red, Wilmington Red, Wyoming Red

Such value as Wyoming (Plate XXXII) possesses lies in the hardiness,
productiveness and healthiness of the vine. The appearance of the
fruit is very good, the bunches are well formed and composed of rich
amber-colored berries of medium size. The quality, however, is poor,
being that of the wild Labrusca in foxiness of flavor and in flesh
characters. It is not nearly as valuable as some other of the red
Labruscas hitherto described and can hardly be recommended either for
the garden or the vineyard. Wyoming was introduced by S. J. Parker of
Ithaca, New York, who states that it came from Pennsylvania in 1861.

Vine vigorous, hardy, healthy, productive. Canes numerous,
slender, dark reddish-brown covered with blue bloom; nodes
enlarged, frequently flattened; tendrils continuous, short, bifid.
Leaves of average size and thickness; upper surface light green,
dull, smooth; lower surface dull green with tinge of bronze,
pubescent; lobes one to three with terminus acute; petiolar sinus
shallow, wide; basal sinus usually wanting; lateral sinus shallow
and wide when present; teeth shallow. Flowers sterile, mid-season;
stamens reflexed.

Fruit early, keeps well. Clusters slender, cylindrical, compact;
pedicel short, slender with small warts; brush slender, pale green
with brown tinge. Berries medium, round, rich amber red with thin
bloom, persistent, firm; skin tender, adherent, astringent; flesh
pale green, translucent, juicy, tough, solid, strongly foxy,
vinous; poor in quality. Seeds adherent, one to three, slightly
notched, light brown.
