SWENSON WHITE (E.S. 6-1-43)
(Hybrid: contains Vitis Labrusca, Vitis Riparia)
GREEN SEEDED TABLE GRAPE
Lon Rombough (famous American winemaker, author of The Grape Grower) recounts that he had sent cuttings of a selection of grape plants to one of his friends in Colorado for testing. The latter having accepted a job in a nursery at Boulder planted some of these cuttings.
One day, a journalist specialized in horticulture visiting the nursery, tasted one of the grapes from one of these vines, and fell in love with it.
Seeing on the label attached to the plant, the name ‘Swenson White’ she named the variety this way in her article published in the magazine “Horticulture”. Having no idea that, in fact, the label was a shorthand for “One of Swenson’s white cultivar” (“Swenson/White”). Once the name was printed in a national magazine, it became an “official name”.
