No description available.

Deutsche Kronprinzessin – See, ‘Kronprinzessin von Deutschland’.

Deutsche Perle –  Wrede (Luneburg) Germany. 1913.

 The name means  “German Pearl ”.

No description available except "propagated by seed" (Wrede advertisement) - It seems likely that this is 'Koenigin Charlotte'.  In 1913 German chauvinism and nationalism was at its peak, so the name of an English queen may have been felt inappropiate for this important variety.
