Buffalo: Has synonym names NY 10830 and Early Steuben. Vigorous, productive, early ripening (around 2 weeks before Concord) variety derived from Herbert andWatkins varieties by NY's Geneva Research Station in 1938. Resembles its "Herbert" parent. Once found extensively planted in the Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada and elsewhere. Moderately winter hardy, with good growth vigor, it usually ripens in late September and can produce very sweet, blue slipskin fruit. Produces best when trained to 4-cane Kniffen system. At last report this Concord-type grape has been displaced by other varieties except where used for tablegrape and juice production.
If you want, I have a good friend in Niagara County that grows lots of Steuben and I'm sure he'd have enough for you. He grows lots of them, along with other table grapes for Wegman's. Let me know.
