The Thompson Seedless Grape
William Thompson, an Englishman, and his family settled here in 1863. In 1872, he sent to New York for three cuttings called Lady de Coverly of which only one survived. The grape, first publicly displayed in Marysville in 1875, became known as Thompson's Seedless Grape. Today thousands of acres have been planted in California for the production of raisins, bulk wine and table grapes.
