Seneca is a white grape with oval berries on medium-sized clusters. Berries have a firm texture, and the skin adheres to the flesh. The flavor is excellent. The vine is susceptible to winter damage and powdery mildew.
An early release from Cornell University’s Geneva, New York experiment station. The small, white oval berries of this century-old variety ripen very early, coming on at least six weeks before Concord. Though not seedless, most of the excellently sweet, spicey-flavored berries have only one seed. It tends to alternate between light and heavy crops, and vigor is on the high side, Seneca must be pruned to canes as spurs are not productive. Fruit quality is so good it’s still worth a try, at least for a home grower, though a few growers succeed with it for very early roadside sales. Cold hardy to between -10 and -15oF.
