Concord - vine and leaf

The Concord was the result of a ten-year, elaborate selection. The "Father of the Concord Grape" Ephraim Wales Bull (1806-1895) sat in 1843 in the city of Concord in Massachusetts the cores of one wild grape and increased this to 22,000 cuttings, From this he chose until 1849 a single vine. Nearby was a Catawba vine, which was always suspected as a parent. He increased and selected these further. The final result was presented in 1853, about which there is even the historical photograph below. Bull then named the variety in 1854 to the nearby town of Concord. From the 1860s, she then found as "Grape of the Millions" widespread in the northeast of the United States.
