I've grown many of these varieties and even like some of them. I'm
especially interested in what you think of Noir de Crimee. Is the gel
brown? (I know you won't know for some time, but when you report, let me
know. What's Byron's Brandywine?  Have you ever grown Schimmeig Creg? I
think it was developed by the guy who developed green grape and green
zebra. I've heard it's wonderful (and red, I think). Developer is from
Bakersfield, so there may be more of a chance it will do well in the West
for us. Margaret L
