The Rural New Yorker figures this variety. By the way in which the artist has arranged the base of one raceme so as to line with the apex of another, the racemes appear to be from six to twelve inches long; and it is only after a second thought has suggested the impossibility of such dimensions that we conclude the appearance is but an artistic delusion. So far as we can judge from the picture the berries are as large as the cherry, with probably the length of the Versailles. From what is said of it we judge it to be a desirable variety.
