Chilwell Alicante

Bunches, large, nine inches to a foot long, broad shouldered, and with very stout stalks. Berry-stalks, long, slender, and slightly warted. Berries, large, an inch or more in length, oblong or oval. Skin, thick and membranous, quite black, covered with thin bloom. Flesh, tender and very juicy, sweet, and richly flavoured. Seeds, rarely more than two, and generally only one.

A very excellent grape, superior to the Alicante, from which it was raised, and with long oval berries like Morocco.

A seedling raised from Alicante by Mr. Pearson, of Chilwell, near Nottingham, and which first fruited in 1871.

Ciotat (Malmsey Muscadine; Parsley-leaved; Raisin d'Autriche Petersilien Gutedel)

Bunches, medium sized, not quite so large as those of Royal Muscadine, shouldered and loose. Berries, medium sized, round, uneven, with short, thin stalks. Skin, thin, greenish yellow or white, covered with bloom. Flesh, tender, sweet, and with the flavour of Royal Muscadine, of which this variety is a mere form, differing in having the leaves very much cut. It ripens in a cool vinery.

Citron Frontignan (Muscat Citronelle)

Punches, small and cylindrical. Berries, medium sized, quite round. Skin, tender, white, covered with a thin bloom. Flesh, firm and crackling, very juicy, with a fine brisk citron flavour, and a distinct Frontignan aroma.

A very excellent little grape, well adapted for pot culture. It ripens freely in an ordinary vinery.

Cornichon Blanc (Finger Grape; White Cucumber; Bec d'Oiseau; Teta de Vaca)

Bunches, rather small, round, and loose. Berries, very long, sometimes an inch and a half, and narrow, tapering to both ends, and just like very large barberries. Skin, thick, green, and covered with white bloom. Flesh, firm and sweet.

A late-ripening and late-hanging grape of little value, and requires stove heat to ripen it.

Doctor Hogg

Bunches, tapering, a foot to eighteen inches long, and well shouldered. Berries, above medium size, round, three-quarters to seven-eighths of an inch in diameter, on stout stalks. Skin, thin and membranous, not at all astringent, but sweet; yellowish green when ripe, becoming of a rich amber colour when highly ripened. Flesh, firm, sweet, and sprightly, and with a fine Frontignan flavour.

The finest of the White Frontignan grapes, equalling Chasselas Musqué in flavour, but much superior to it in size of the bunches and the berries, the latter of which never crack their skin as that variety invariably does.

It was raised by Mr. John Pearson, of Chilwell, Nottingham, from Duchess of Buccleuch, and received a first-class certificate from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1872.
