The Fruit Committee of the Royal Horticultural Society have just awarded Mr J. R. Pearson, Chilwell Nurseries, Nottingham, first-class certificates for the following new Grapes: Chilwell White, a very promising seedling, which in size and form more resembles the Black Hamburg than any Grape in cultivation; and the other, named Ferdinand de Lesseps, also a white Grape, which created some interest when exhibited last year, as being a remarkably successful cross between the American Strawberry Grape and the Royal Muscadine. It is exceedingly rich in flavour, and though not particularly a showy Grape, it well merits the award given to it, on account of its interesting pedigree, and as the means through which further novelties may be obtained. The opinions here expressed are extracted from the 'Gardeners' Chronicle.'
