Vitis candicans, Engelm. (V. mustangensis, Buckl.). Mustang Grape. Plant strong and high-climbing, with densely woolly young growth (which is generally rusty-tipped), and very thick diaphragms: lvs. medium in size and more or less poplar-like, ranging from reniform-ovate to cordate-ovate or triangular-ovate, dull above but very densely white-tomentose below and on the petioles, the basal sinus very broad and open or usually none whatever (the base of the lf. then nearly truncate), deeply 5-7-lobed (with enlarging rounded sinuses) on the strong shoots and more or less indistinctly lobed or only angled on the normal growths, the margins wavy or sinuate-toothed: stamens in the sterile fls. long and strong, those in the fertile fls. very short and laterally reflexed: cluster small, mostly branched, bearing 12-20 large (3/4 in. or less diam.) purple or light-colored or even whitish berries, which have a thick skin and a very disagreeable fiery flavor; seeds large, pyriform. W. Ark., Okla., N. Texas, mostly on limestone soils.

Var. coriacea, Bailey (V. coriacea, Shuttlew.). Leather - leaf or Calloosa Grape. Fig. 3965. Differs from the species chiefly in bearing much smaller (about. 1/3 in. diam.) thinner-skinned and more edible grapes with mostly smaller seeds, and perhaps a less tendency to very deep lobing in the lvs. on young shoots and possibly rather more marked rustiness on the young growths. Fla. chiefly southward, in which range various Texan plants reappear.—The more agreeable quality of the fr. is perhaps the result of a more equable and moister climate.
