Honestly, I never knew grapes had pretty pink blossoms. These are Concord grapes, developed from native grapes right down the street in Concord, MA in 1853. Even if folks are unfamiliar with the name, everyone knows Concord grapes by their flavor. It is the grape flavor we all grew up with in Welch’s grape juice, jelly, popsicles, etc. According to the plaque in Concord Center, “In 1869 Dr. Thomas B. Welch of Vineland, New Jersey pioneered a method of processing Concord grapes into pure unfermented grape juice and thus laid the foundation for an entire new industry.” I always thought that this was kind of neat.
