Minor Seedling (venango)

This grape has attracted some attention lately--some persons claiming

for it superior qualities as a _wine_ grape, even classing it with the

Delaware, a statement which I cannot believe. It is a rank Fox, and I

can therefore hardly think it will make a wine to suit a fastidious


Bunch medium, very compact, sometimes shouldered; berry full medium,

pale red, round, sweet, but very pulpy and foxy. Ripens later than

Catawba; is very productive, vigorous and healthy--not subject to rot.
