Oporto





Of all the humbugs ever perpetrated upon the grape-growing public, this

is one of the most glaring. The vine, although a rank and healthy

grower, is unproductive; seldom setting more than half a dozen berries

on a bunch, and these are so sour, have such a hard pulp, with such a

decided frost-grape taste and flavor, and are so deficient in juice,

that no sensible man should think of making them into wine, much less

call it, as its disseminator did, "the true port wine grape."
