This is a Hungarian wine grape but its high quality and early season

make it a desirable table-grape in the East. It seems to be grown but

little on the Pacific slope. The following description is made from

fruit grown at Geneva, New York:

Vine medium in vigor, productive. Young leaves tinged red at

edges, upper surface glossy; mature leaves large, round, upper

surface dull, lower surface downy; lobes five, terminal lobe

acuminate; basal sinus deep, medium to narrow, closed to

overlapping; lower lateral sinus deep, variable in width; upper

lateral sinus deep, usually narrows; margins dentate, teeth

shallow to medium deep. Flowers appear late; stamens reflexed.

Fruit ripens at Geneva the first or second week in October and

keeps well in storage; clusters above medium in size, medium in

length, broad, frequently double-shouldered, tapering, medium to

loose; berries medium to small, oval, light red becoming dark when

fully ripe, with thick bloom; skin thin, tender, adherent to the

pulp; flesh greenish, juicy, tender, melting, vinous, sweet;

quality very good.
