Concord - Rebstock und Blatt

The Concord was the result of ten years of complex selection. Dubbed the "Father of the Concord Grape," Ephraim Wales Bull (1806-1895) seeded a wild vine in the Massachusetts town of Concord in 1843 and propagated it to 22,000 cuttings. From these he selected a single vine by 1849. Nearby stood a Catawba vine, which had always been suspected as a parent. This he propagated and selected further. The final result was presented in 1853, about which there is even a historical record. Bull then named the variety after the nearby town of Concord in 1854. From the 1860ies on, it was widely spread in the northeastern USA as "Grape of the Millions".
