The northern {Fox grape} of the United States is the {V. Labrusca}, from which, by cultivation, has come the Isabella variety. The southern {Fox grape}, or {Muscadine}, is the {V. vulpina}. The {Frost grape} is {V. cordifolia}, which has very fragrant flowers, and ripens after the early frosts. [1913 Webster]
