There was a time when the editor welcomed the white grape. There were not many good ones, and it was safe to offer a comparative opinion. Now it is reversed. They are so numerous that he dare not undertake to describe one, and say wherein it differs from some one he has already seen. All that can be done by the editor now is to record their appearance and leave them to fight out the battle for supremacy among themselves.
One of the latest of these brilliant appearances in the viti-cultural sky, is the Stelton, raised by Mr. Thompson, of New Brunswick. The bunches are about eight inches long, well shouldered, rather loose, berries about the size of Croton, and "not hard to take." It is compared favorably in flavor with the Lady Washington.
