Do you have wild Vitis riparia in the area? The survivors might have
been the result of a chance cross between the Concord and a Vitis
riparia. The small cluster and berry size of riparia comes through
rather strongly, so the result could be something with a resemblance to
Valiant. I have several labrusca-riparia hybrids in my material and
there is a definite "family resemblance" if you aren't looking for the
differences. But the parentage of Valiant is well documented as
Fredonia x Vitis riparia.

Concord. I nursed my plants through a Winter so I could get seed,
subsequently planted. A few of the seeds grew and thrived. Now that I
have Valiant too, I can't tell which is which; they are identical.
be that Valiant is really only hardy offspring of Concord?
