Creveling (catawissa) (bloom)

This grape, although not quite perhaps so early as has been claimed for

it--ripening about five days after Hartford Prolific--is yet of much

better quality; and if it only should prove productive enough, will no

doubt make an excellent wine. Bunch long, loose, shouldered; berry full

medium, black, round, with little bloom; pulp tender; dark juice, sweet

and very good--seems to be hardy and healthy.
