Mid. V. riparia x Concord. Originated by Louis Suelter in MN, 1881. Beta (pronounced Bett-uh, not Bay-tuh) was his wife.
Old standby heirloom, excellent for juice, jelly and jam. Decent eating off the vine when completely ripe. Most Concord-like of all our northern varieties. Medium-sized black berries in moderately compact to loose clusters. Early to bloom, early to ripen.
Vigorous healthy productive vines will cover an arbor in short order. Long even canes are ideal for basket-weaving. Extremely hardy. Z3. (well-rooted bare-root vines)
