We have from Mr. Hubbard, leaves of the Prentiss Grape, showing their hardy and healthy character. It appears to be derived from Vitis labrusca.
We have some bunches of this new variety. The bunches are of medium size, but they have a large number of amber green berries thickly set. These are remarkably full of juice, and seem grateful to the palate. The chief objection is in the terribly thick skin. More is returned from the mouth than is swallowed. For all this we believe it contains elements of popularity.
