The summer just passed has been an unusually wet one, and one very unfavorable to the development of the grape crop. In almost every locality grapes have rotten badly. Every variety that we know of has suffered more or less, but it has been observed both in the Eastern and Western states, that the Concord has least of all been affected by the malady. This is a significant fact, and shows that this variety is better adopted to wet weather than any other known variety, whilst, at the same time, it is a luxuriant bearer, producing large and delicious fruit, and winters well in the cold latitudes. Taken all in all, it is the grape for the West.
