One of the best informed commission men in New York city says that the Concord seems to be the popular fancy. Most persons like a black grape. The sale of white grapes is limiteid. He says that Moore's Early is a good early grape, and that more should be planted. II comes early, when there is a good sale for grapes, is of good quality and fine appearance, and sells readily at good prices. The Worden is a good grape for immediate shipment and sale, but will not bear holding. The Rural New Yorkei supplements thifl information by a cantion not to plant the NiƔgara for market. It is a poor snipper and keeper, olthongh the fruit is of fine appearance and quality, and it seems a hardy grape. The autbority quoted places the Catawba, of course, at the head of the list of red grapes. While it cannot b grown except in favored locations, it is the best keeper on the market and it carries well. The Delaware has quite a sale, but the prices. for which it usually sells would seem to be too little above other varieties to make it profitable to grow to any extent. As yet there is nc grape to take the place of the Catawba for long keeping. The Isabella is sold to a limited extent, but this requires conditions similar to the Catawba to bring it to perfection.
