We are glad to find that one by one the valuable seedlings of Mr. Ricketts are coming in the market. Mr. Burrow has taken in hand to work with the Jefferson, a bunch of which we have now before us. It is said to be a cross between the Concord and the Iona, having the healthy foliage and growth of the former, and, as we can testify from the bunch before us, all the delicious flavor of the latter. It is a very handsome bunch, and we should judge from its firm skin will be a valuable shipping grape.
