This new grape, grown from the seed of the Concord, by that

enthusiastic and warm-hearted horticulturist, SAMUEL MILLER, of

Lebanon, Pa., promises to be one of the greatest acquisitions to our

list of really hardy and good grapes, which have lately come before the

public. It has fruited with me the last extremely unfavorable season,

and has stood the hardest test any grape could be put to, without

flinching. Bunch medium, but compact and heavy, shouldered; berry pale

yellow, covered with a white bloom; perhaps a trifle smaller than the

Concord; round; pulpy, but sweet as honey, with only enough of the foxy

aroma to give it character; juicy--very good. I esteem it more highly

than any other white grape I have, as it has the healthy habit and

vigorous growth of its parent, and promises to make an excellent white

wine. Hangs to the bunch well, and will ripen some days before the

Concord.
