Description: p.415: "It grows in Texas, the Indian Territory, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, and Arizona. The quantity of this fruit that an Indian will consume at one time is scarcely credible. The ancient Pueblo Indians were in the habit of cultivating it, as is evident from the peculiar distribution of the plants near ruined settlements. In Arizona, near Fort Whipple, they are arranged in rows and are very old. At Camp Lincoln, on the Verde River, near which were a number of ancient Indian ruins, a small stream called Clear Creek passed close by, on each side of which was a narrow strip of rich land, covered with under-brush, among which were found several grape vines, planted at short intervals, that differed in many particulars from those native to the locality. The small kinds, found so universally in the woods, were growing abundantly all around, but on no other spot could the cultivated kinds found on Clear Creek be discovered. The latter were near dilapidated habitations, the owners of which were evidently p. 416 domestic in their habits. The vines were quite old, and had been repeatedly burnt off, as the stumps testified. The fruit was superior in flavor to the common wild grapes, being sweet and slightly acid. Some were foxy in their nature, while others resembled the Isabella; and one was much like the shriveled Frontignac in taste, size, and habit of plant. Some were short growers, while others ran, like the frost-grape. Specimens of each were dried and sent to Dr. George Engelmann, of St. Louis, who had the seeds planted. There seemed to be five or six varieties. Dr. Engelmann is of opinion that they are one species distinct from the eastern plant, closely allied to Vitis Californica, if not a mere variety of it. He has provisionally named it Vitis Arizonensis."
